A trickling drop of water drips from the faucet,
I know its just another drop into
Life’s gigantic and over-sized bucket.
Time’s moving swiftly, yet;
I squeeze the tap shut, as much as I can,
And get on with my day.
I close my eyes, take a deep breath in and begin the day.
But, I get a sudden and startling kind of head rush.
“Slow down, life, you’re going too fast”,
“I need to catch up! You’re going to fast”.
First, it's a drip; then it's a drop; the faucet gets loose all over again.
Pitter, patter, splitter, splatter – the water falls all around.
