It keeps going.

And going.

And going.

And going.

Until it slows to a crawl, 

Seemingly stopping just to spite us

as we wait in anticipation.

But time ticks by.

It keeps going.

And going.

And going.

And going.

Faster and faster,

So fast that no matter how much we

Try to slow it down, no matter how much

We want a moment to feel endless,

It keeps going.

And going.

And going.

And going.

We ted to view time as an enemy

On an endless march against us

Withering us further and further

Until we are at the end of ourselves.

In reality, time is one of our greatest allies 

And comforter.

Because no matter how broken things seem to be,

No matter how hopeless,

How tragic,

How incomprehensibly painful,

Time keeps going forward.

Not dragging us towards the inevitable,

But carrying us towards the finish line.
