Advance


I advance every day

In my age.

I advance steadily,

At a lightning speed...

Yet I see, all living things

Are still ahead of me:

The saplings I have planted,

Rise above me;

The newborn grass

Is going up towards the skies;

The birds born this spring

Consider a flight

To a distant continent...

A breathless boy

Keeps following my tracks

Along unending roads,

Through a maze of corridors.

Now he bears

By far more weighty burden of concerns,

But he will find the way out

Before I do...

I am not insulted. Nor am I surprised.

So, I advance

In the reverse direction,

Where time keeps melting away

With every passing day...

But I know, that even that thought

Is again

Ahead of me.
