The early bird gets the worm but the second rat gets the cheese.

There is more to life besides increasing its speed.

Back and forth
She swings
Her bare feet barely touching
The gravel ground
Her face is lined with age and hardships
As she moves
Back and forth
Wondering at the strange innocent soul
She once was
Her pace never slows
As she moves
Back and forth

This is based on an older lady I saw swinging in an empty park.
