The Wished Away

He sits and watches everything

Because it’s all new and different

Each moment is exciting

Each experience is an adventure

But as time wears on it fades

It disappears into familiarity

It no longer exists as growth

But a burden and a chore

 

The new is not to be embraced

And the old is how it should be

His time he says is precious to him

Yet it is wasted away

The desire to do more remains

But the actions show it just dreams

 

So he lives his life

 

Without life

 

All because the child he once was

Simply let itself get old
