The race

Today's 100 words:

One day blends into another and then another, pushing the weeks and months and years, all passing so quickly--too quickly--and I try to catch up, trip-running over reluctant feet, resistant feet, feet that never wanted to sign up for the race, feet married to a body that wants to sit, stay, bask in a moment it knows its feeble lizard-mind will lose in a second, wants to hold up a hand, palm out, shout to a world that never listens, can't listen, "Stop! Wait! Breathe! Don't move so quickly to that inevitably approaching end. Please rest."
