The years creak past, it seems as though I’ll be a kid forever. It isn’t fair I have to do things I don’t want to, go places I don’t want to and have to wear clothes that are ugly and don’t want to wear.
The years start to go a little faster. Seems as though I’ll be in school forever and will never grow up. There are still so many rules to follow although I have a little choice in what I do, where I go and what I wear.
Time begins to tick a bit faster as school comes to an end. I marry and move far away from home. Instead of school it’s work that I don’t like that I have to do to be a grownup and help support our household.
Time ticks even faster as children are born and as time is consumed by the raising of these kids. We don’t realize just how much faster that time has become.
As our older generation passes on and our parents replace them and we replace our theirs and our children replace ours we begin to realize that we are fast forwarding through time way too fast and that our parents and ultimately we are not immortal.
Prayers for time to speed up has been replaced by prayers for time to slow down.
