R - Rome Wasn't Built in a Day

Take your time
To do it right

Rome wasn’t built in a day

Haste makes waste
The waste to want

Rome wasn’t built in a day

Slow down your pace
Life isn’t a race

Rome wasn’t built in a day

Remember the tortoise
Instead of the hare

Rome wasn’t built in a day

Enjoy the journey
Enjoy your life

Rome wasn’t built in a day

Remember this
when things get tough

That Rome wasn’t built in a day!

  1. Rome wasn't built in a day but it's a great place, I hope to see it again someday. Stopping in for the A-Z challenge and I love it.

    1. I have never been. I had the chance, my parents and I traveled around Europe when I was 13. But, I was 13 and didn't want to go! I stayed in school in Spain. I also skipped Morocco, which I regret very much. 13 year olds are shortsighted!
