Slow Down.

She told me to slow down. The best advice I may never take. My life is a race with no debate of who’s in place. I stare my future in the face as I’m running from my disgrace. But my heart is beating hard and I’m struggling to keep the pace. Too many plates inContinue reading “Slow Down.”
