I want to stop time and catch my breath. Just a little moment to step back from the sadness,
A chance to step away from the pain.
I want to be free again.
Open to do as I please in my own little world that doesn’t move; a quiet place to relax and rest.
I want to stop time and take it all in.
The stars, the roses, even the little ants on the hill.
This fast-paced world has lost its thrill, but I want more than a world that’s just simple and slow.
I want a world that does not go.
Oh, how I long to be still.
I want to stop and reconnect.
To halt everything, and capture all the scattered pieces— the shards that cannot run.
I want to stop time and be free.
In this motionless space where I can be me.
I want to stop and make it all mine.
I want it all to stay, I want to stop time.
