Don’t Rush

Don’t Rush

Don’t Rush

Viano Dee || Don’t Rush

Hear the mumble ring, those are voices of your relatives

Gathering together wondering when you will settle down

They say you’re in your 30s but you haven’t brought home any one

You’re gradually becoming the main topic of their many gossips

You know you’re not ready cause you’ve put things into perspective

But they are never paying attention cause they want you to have kids

It’s surprising how they are pushing not regarding divorce rates

Guess it’s time to put them in the right place

I’m doing fine, I feel alright
And when it’s time, I’ll bring home a spouse
But as for now, let me live my life
Don’t choke me out with this never ending pressure

Just look around, look at the stats
How many broken homes, can you please count
Don’t pressure me into getting a spouse
I choose to be patient till the time is right

I’m tired of being the subject of your gossip
Maybe you should try to be supportive
Get busy with the issues that concern you
Don’t stress me out

This isn’t something that anyone should rush into
Just because everyone around is taken
It takes a lot more than getting that title
Don’t rush me in

Not everyone who is married is happy
Some are just pretending to be living fine
(Many are dying in silence)
I would rather be single and happy than be married and miserable

I choose to take my time and I know that’s not the regular
Stop bothering me, it’s my story, don’t be a meddler
At God’s own time, I will find mine, it’ll be spectacular
And if I choose to remain single, I no be criminal

I’m doing fine, I feel alright
And when it’s time, I’ll bring home a spouse
But as for now, let me live my life
Don’t choke me out with this never ending pressure

Just look around, look at the stats
How many broken homes, can you please count
Don’t pressure me into getting a spouse
I choose to be patient till the time is right

I’m tired of being the subject of your gossip
Maybe you should try to be supportive
Get busy with the issues that concern you
Don’t stress me out

This isn’t something that anyone should rush into
Just because everyone around is taken
It takes a lot more than getting that title
Don’t rush me in

About “Don’t Rush”

Don’t Rush is the third track on the EP, 30. The song talks about the pressure society puts on unmarried ladies to get married. Marriage takes effort and commitment to work but unfortunately so many young people go into marriage as a result of pressure, desperation and end up miserable. The message is clear. Don’t rush!

This is beautiful! Surely it came from a personal place. I relate to this immensely as I get this pressure from some family members. I see that they see the reality they want to see without even trying to see from my perspective. Strong message!
