I am not taking credit for the poem but I have no idea who wrote it.. I jsut want to show my point...

Slow Dance

I found this poem on one of the cheesy "repost this and you will save the dying cancer child's life" ....

that's not the most believable thing, but major props to who ever wrote this...

people need to read this and realize the meaning and the point.

Slow down... PLESE! All the little girls who are dressing like what they see on TV or magazines.. and all the boys who are trying to grow up quickly jsut to mess up your life! It's too precious.. you have to enjoy every damn second of it!! Now we all want to be older, but at the end of the day, you wish it was jsut morning.

We may not know what we want now, we might not ever! But enjoy the time you have to figure it out, and dont rush to get it, jsut to be disapointed in the End.

So what if it's raining today? You're gonna see a rainbow eventualy.


Have you ever watched kids
On a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain
Slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.

Do you run through each day
On the fly?
When you ask How are you?
Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done,
Do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores
Running through your head?

You'd better slow down
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.

Ever told your child,
We'll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste,
Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die?
Cause you never had time
To call and say,"Hi"

You'd better slow down.
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift....
Thrown away.

Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.
