Racing Through Life

I'm Walking
Steady Paced
Right, Left, Right, Left
Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock
Going Slow
Taking in Everything
As it Passes Me
Friends, School, Childhood
Everything's Easy
Until I Start Jogging
Getting Faster
But Not Too Fast
Starting To Forget
What Has Happened
Before Now
Trying To Remember
But
I Cannot
So I Move On
I Begin to Run
Getting Faster
And Faster
Old Memories
Long Forgotten
I Can Only Think
Of What's Happening Now
Adulthood Passes Me
I Try to
Go Back
But
It's Impossible
So I Keep Going
I'm Sprinting
To the Finish
To The End
I'm Too Tired
Too Weak
To Keep Going
But
I Still Sprint
Still Live
Still Try
To Remember
What Has Happened
In this Race
In This Life
Until I Stop
And finish
Happy With What
I Have
Accomplished
