Busy Doing

Alarm bells ring silently in my head
Signal messages all around me
Go unnoticed by my busyness
I dash from place to place
Getting very little done
These warnings I do not heed
For I am too occupied
With the next task on my list
I run from one to the other
And sometimes back again
Frantic, chaotic and tired
The Universe is telling me
To slow down and take a breath
Before I blink, it can all be gone
And I’ll have missed everything
Because I was too busy doing
Instead of busy being
