When time changed
A year feels so long.
You read some books and learned new things. You stressed and relaxed, and again and again. You traveled and ate good food. You laughed a lot. You cried a lot. You bought a few things and joined a team. You met new people, people who never knew. You thought about that. You sat around. You moved so fast.
A year feels so short.
You don’t remember fall. You don’t remember winter. You don’t remember those books you read or what exactly you learned. You don’t remember what made you laugh or all the trains you took to you’re not sure where. You know you have new memories but you can’t make sense of them.
Moments in life separate the old from the new. The before and after. You’re in a new after. And in this new after time makes no sense. You’re starting to get that. You want time to stop and you want time to pass.
You’re in the present.
