Non Stop Express

Unstoppable
Full speed ahead
Backgrounds blurs by
Furiously fast, forward direction
Ignoring everything else
Only destination; results matters

Full throttle
Careless of nothing else
Ambitious, determined to show
Proving to the world
Being something other than dirt

Rushing towards the end
Without the pleasures
The journey undertaken
Nature’s beautiful surroundings
Ignored, set aside as worthless
Focused, narrowed minded
Misplaced values; objectives

Life, patience of living
Given only once, never again
Skipping important parts
Replaced by misconceptions
Regrets; shall be plentiful
Being in such a hurry
Missing the finer things
Opportunities wasted.
