Helter Skelter

by Michelle Sherlock

Photo of orange helter skelter slide with tubes turning and swirling round

Helter skelter pace of life
Pushes me forward
Urges me on
Whirling me round
To face each new day
When I have barely begun
On yesterday
Some days
I want to press pause
So I can catch up
Or because
It is all too much
Other days are so rich
I want to spin out
That golden space
Forever
And yet
Even in the midst
Of the hustle and bustle
I take courage andĀ strength
From the thought that
This too
Will pass
