Time is swiftly passing by
Years turn into days
Days turn into hours
Hours turn into seconds.
Time will not stand still.
It doesn’t beckon at our will.
As we grow tired and old
Through quicksand we hold
Our precious memories of the past
They slip through our hands so fast.
As we near the end of our journey
Time doesn’t change it’s course.
It seems to even speed up
The only way to stop this madness
Is to embrace the inevitability of this law
and realize time affects us all.
