Has anyone noticed?

As anyone noticed lately ‘
How time is speeding up?
An old friend of mine says
it’s the detrition of the time continuum’ ?

I got up one day last week
made breakfast
Had a shower
got dressed
Just in time to see the sun set!.

When I was young
I remember one day
it was the school holidays, June
I went in the woods, to play,

That day lasted three n’ a half weeks!
I was glad to get to bed that day.

Now with all the uncertainty in life,
days and nights fly by
I have some crazy dreams!
I sometimes dream that Im a chicken
with a razor knife taped to my throat,

all my Starving friends and associates just walk by
nod ‘ and say good day,
but for some reason,
I feel so insecure!

Id feel suspicious!
If I had time!

But lately
I found a solution
I play my old videos
On slow action

Im just up to my wedding day!

Thursdays I stop!
And quickly head down to
Draw my aged pension.
Don’t young people move
So slowly!!!

Review Request (Intensity): 
I appreciate moderate constructive criticism
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
How does this theme appeal to you?
Last few words: 
I haven't wrote for quite a while Just some thing that popped into my head?
Editing stage: 


not so sure about the ending and I believe some punctuation is needed here and there but all in all I've really enjoyed.


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words

As old age creeps up on us, everything else goes faster and faster! I can hardly grasp what the commercials on T.V. are all about before they are on to the next one! Before too long, I'll be so far behind, I'll be able to watch the programs that I missed yesterday! LOL ~ Gee

This must be the place, 'cause there ain't no place like this place anywhere near this place

.....I got up one day last week
made breakfast
Had a shower
got dressed
Just in time to see .......the sun set!.

as one ages
one tends to slow


Just attention seeking ?? The write was good.
It is that faraway drift we have sometimes in age when we drift off to sleep and miss parts of the day.
Today was bad I was up at 7am the morning condensed into a few moments went to the Hospital to visit the Wife then did some shopping came home and that was the day gone..
The Wife will be there for a few more days I suppose I will lose a few more this week then lol.
Time whatever that is shrinks and distance seem shorter then on another day it takes a life time of doing to complete a few tasks.
Just enjoy the realisation of being, it is good, Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
