I’ve been so long
on overdrive
I’ve forgotten
Where my brake is

It’s amazing
How quickly you step up
Yet how rarely
You step down

No wonder
I’m tired
And sleep won’t come

Remind me
the mountain and stream still exist
even when I hurtle past

Give me space
teach me how to slow down
find a lower gear
and hear
You talk to me

in whispers, in silence
With the cares of the world
In Your hands
Where they belong
