IS TIME MOVING FASTER OR AM I JUST BECOMING MORE AWARE OF HOW SHORT A YEAR REALLY IS BECAUSE CHRIST ITS ALREADY JULY
Your years are getting shorter proportionally to your life. Every day, you’ve been alive more than you were a year before.
A year for a 1 year old is their WHOLE LIFE and a year for a 5 year old is 1/5th of their life. Your fractions just keep getting smaller, making your years seem shorter.
I’m staging a protest against growing up, marching down memory lane. We’ll don the armour and prepare for a battle. Pigtails and wooden swords will fight for nostalgia’s sake. We won’t step on the cracks for fear of breaking our backs, but we’ll do our best to imitate chaos. Filling our ranks with tattered old veterans, loosing stuffing from holes in their sides. Our battle cry - the ice cream truck jingle, and our daily rations are PB and J’s. You won’t hear the orderly stomping of boots but a chorus of laughter rings loud. No royal red capes billowing out, but patched up blankets instead. So I’m staging a protest against Father Time, trying to rewind the clock. I’m wishing for days that have long since passed, remembering a simpler age. I’ll lead the ranks with a toilet roll telescope, and raise the pillowcase flag. Campaigning for memories, and for hopes, and for dreams, we’ll fight like we used to pretend we could.
