Pause a while

Dear friend, let us pause a while and live
Is preparation so paramount
That the competition can be foregone
And yet, another fills the gap

Dear friend, let us pause a while and dance
Now that the muscles do concur
And the heart leap
We have seen Ali stagger
Outside of the ring

Dear friend, let us pause a while and listen
Sometimes words are not enough
They twist more than they untie
Let's speak to the soul through silence and action

The world is full of activities
Even those with entertaining Facebook updates
Glittering photos on Instagram
Record breaking followers on twitter
Are within lonely
Some needs are unseen
They must be quenched from within

Dear friend, Let us pause a while and relate
Most hearts are bleeding
Oh! Not of heart breaks
That's a better disease
Than, void and emptiness
Yes, even God detests vacuo 
That he made the world to fill it

Dear friend, let us pause a while and think
Shall we not one day leave
What then shall remain of us
If not the relics of our existence
The prints of our touches
Given a thought to what yours would be?

Dearest, let us pause a while and teach
Teach the young to love
And the old to tolerate
Teach the youth patience
In Foruma1, the fastest doesn't always win

Let us pause a while and love
Even love tames the wild
That it responds to direction
How much more a man
No one is made of steel or stone
We are all flesh and blood
Touch a heart today
Share your life today
Why wait, there is enough time
In the serenity of the grave
