Accelerating

accelerating
the longer we live
faster and faster
we're held in a sieve

of time disappearing
vanishing, it's gone
yesterday's fading
and now we belong

spinning in cycles
while rising we fall
into the future
we pass through the wall

of mind's limitations
ideas we once held
lost in the ruins
of where we once dwelled

faster and faster
as winter becomes
spring's exultation
then warm summer suns

leaves in the autumn
fall to the ground
christmas then newyear's
around and around

accelerating
the longer we live
faster and faster
we take and we give

time's disappearing
soon to be gone
yesterday's fading
in now we belong
