It takes guts to say
I have enough
I will quit the rat race
Race for acquiring things
Some for comfort, others for “others”
Is there no end?
We start aspiring for bigger things
Bigger house, bigger car, fatter bank balance
All in the name of necessity.
Necessary for living a life style
Necessary for providing a life style
Necessary for making a life statement
That we have arrived.
Once we have the basics
Can we think of running the race
For being a better human
For a better planet.
Maybe we can run this race
Once a week at least
Connecting ourselves to our soul.
