Time on the Run

Print Share
    Time is my rocketship
    running to the sun at hyperspeed.
    My days are strobe-light flashes,
    with my nights in-between.
    Chaotic noise swirls ’round my ears
    the sounds, the voices I know in my life.
    I ride without throttle or lever or gears,
    with wind in my face from the turn of the earth.
    I’m frightened, of course,
    but strapped on too tight
    to ever fall off from my ship on the run.
    Look back, I can’t,
    and forward, I must.
    There’s no stopping it; I’ve tried before.
