Age

Seems nothing prepares for the effects of time
When the skin wrinkles and muscles fail
The criminal age sneaks up on youth
And before I’m ready away he sails
Leaving me wondering why time ails
Why no one ever told me the truth
That I must grow old or not grow at all

Only yesterday I was young and worry-free
Why has time taken its toll on me?
Life. Life was on an upward trajectory
Time. Time now changes the way I see
The way I move, the way I look, the way I be

I ran through the signs I ignored the signals
Head on collision into reality’s thick walls
Into the side of my head my pride falls
Head on collision into my mind’s brick walls
Inside my head down time’s dark halls
While others slowed down and ground to a halt
I hurtled full force, over time I’d vault
No one could tell me I’d meet my fault

Only yesterday I was young and worry-free
Why has time taken its toll on me?
Life. Life was on an upward trajectory
Time. Time now changes the way I see
The way I move, the way I look, the way I be
