Speed of Life ©

Allen Steble
Port Kennedy, Australia
2007

In the blink of an eye
In the passing of a moment
Before we know the answers to why
Before we can search before we can find
The answers are sharp knives stabbing from behind
The pain they cause is a cut to my side
Yet time will eat the evidence and waist no hour
soon another will come another will discover
The arm will die yet keep on moving
For time goes fast and won't stop running
