The years roll by

Faster and faster

Hurtling past at breakneck speed

Happy new year

Blink once or twice

And it’s happy new year again

Another repetition of the same old thing

The earth circles around the sun

Our lives circle around themselves

And the only thing that changes

 Is the speed with which we career

Brakes off, out of control,

Until we are flung from this merry-go-round

Into the void
