Every minute feels faster and faster

As the days often disappear

During times of disaster,

Year after year.

Nothing can stop this train

No matter the resistance

And nobody forsees this pain

Or what creates this distance.

My story may change

due to time and its power

But my story, I must tame

and write this hour.

The story remains unwritten,

But words still spring on the page

As writer’s block subsides,

I set my stage.
