My Life

My life is so crazy
I've been so many places but still nowhere
met so many people but don't know them anymore

Life is just a minute
people are just a second
so I watch the clock go past till
past till when my dad was alive
past till when relationships seemed everlasting
past till when I had nothing to worry about
past till when I hung on and believed someone's every word

But the arrow speeds ahead
So I must cath up



So I follow every trend and every fad
I have to keep up gotta do something

So my life consantly changes withing time of the text of a history book
So my life is history, people I once knew made a landmark in my life
places that I've seen no longer there but are only in the snapshots of my textbook page memory
Set into into chronilogical
date and time, just diwindling away

So I try to stop and pause but you can't stop time
So I try to relive but you can't relive history
History is being made and time is still going and there's nothing I can do about it
