Poetry – Life – an observation of how it passes more and more quickly.

Poetry – Life – an observation of how it passes more and more quickly.

It seems to go so slowly when you are young. There is an endless summer to get bored in. There are days full of nothing.

Then you leave school and the days are full. You look behind and find years stacking up.

You have a career and family and there isn’t time to breathe or energy to breathe with. But you promise yourself the things you will do tomorrow.

Then it is tomorrow and you are doing those things. It has sneaked up on you. It is like you never really got going and now it is almost over.

Time. Life.

Life

Time in seconds

Tick   Tick   Tick

Passing slowly

Quick   Quick   Quick

Filled with longing

Sick   Sick   Sick

And hopes, fears, dreams

Pick   Pick   Pick

Rushing past now

Trick   Trick   Trick

Gathering speed

Lick   Lick   Lick

Crashing out now

Kick   Kick   Kick

Time in seconds

QUICKKICKTICK

Live it
