Pace

image

Often I find myself stuck
between the slow
and the fast,
fitting into neither,
stumbling,
never finding
a comfortable
pace.

I am impatient with those ahead of me, whose slow progress impedes my attempts to reach my destination.

I am angry at those pushing me from behind, so concerned with reaching their goal that I am just another obstacle in their way.

I must remember that at times I have been both.

It is the engine within, not the speed of those I encounter on the road, that drives me to anger and impatience.

O Divine Driver,
Grant that I might have a
more compassionate
awareness on this
journey.
