The Inevitability of Time

We travel through life hoping that time won’t move.

Always hoping that it will stand still with the steely determination of a Marine standing guard.

But it doesn’t.

Days, months and years spent living, mystifyingly chained to the fixtures of life itself, not paying attention to the ticking clock.

Yet time marches on.

Family and friends pass, reunited with the earth, silenced by time, remembered briefly and then forgotten like the sting of a bee soothed by cold cubed ice.

We move on, masking our sadness with memories, perceived and real, that are tattooed in our minds.

Time begins to take over, the memories that once held us up now falter and fade, our own timeless progression now becomes the enemy.

We then pass and that memory will hold another up until time catches up with them.
