Let It Bleed~FOWC – Pause Yourself


This is not a critique, merely stating a fact

Times were much simpler and more relaxed

The days I recall were easy and carefree

Not scheduled throughout with responsibility

Dreams were kept hidden for only you to explore

Not to post to the world for some online lore

We feel we’ve gotten closer with our advanced new roles

But, the allure of technology has replaced our souls

Force yourself time to reflect and power down

And pause to revisit those free days that are no longer around


Written for the Let It Bleed Weekly Prompt Challenge from Saumya Agrawal’s Randomness Inked blog. The prompt was the word “pause” Also, for Fandago’s FOWC prompt -“Recall”.
