If we could go back three hundred years
There'd be no mobile phones
We would talk face to face.
And there would be no cars:
We would travel slowly on horseback
Appreciating nature and the world around us,
Rather than rushing by it all.
We could arrive at a town
And stay at an inn
Then look around the town
Walking through cattle markets. Slowly.
Texts? Only those written in books.
We rush so fast these days, I feel
All knowledge at our fingertips.
I feel it would be healthier to slow down.
Savour the moment and what we've got.
Properly connecting to the World
Rather than to the internet.
