Something new quickly approaches
Zooming down the track
Like a roller coaster at top speed
Building anticipation, fear,
Changes in the vast unknown
Until slowly, slowly it begins its final ascent
Shaving time like dark chocolate
Whittling away little by little
‘Til there’s no time left.
Counting down the minutes
Watching the clock
Waiting. Waiting for . . .
