I am writing my own life story. The only bad thing is I am writing in pen and cannot erase my mistakes.


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
