AugPoWriMo 1

Hold onto nothing as fast as you can
Well still these important years are your life
Sleepwalking into realization
Other people’s fears are the same as yours
Namely childhood never lasted as long
As it seemed at the time considering
You have lived this long reliving the past
Nobody told me there’d be days like these
Static as the tape paused be kind rewind
You know you’ll never watch that tape again
Everything was better in the eighties
But that was forty years ago by now
All of your life has led to this moment
And it’s anybody’s guess where it went
