Fast Forward

Ever pass time with a forgettable sip
Briefly pressing fast forward
Skipping through the part
Where excitement ebbs
Rather not let the tension build
Through long languishing walks
Lush leaps fully sighted steps
Freshly cut grass deep
Soil, watered in spates
Growing life like baking bread
Rather forgo the messy part
Go straight to the taste
No toil, no emotional wrecks
Flightless birds bouncing back
In only two dimensions of depth
No third chances to reverse
Engineer all those moments
That could have been
Rushing as we are
To reach the dead end

Fast Forward
