Exhaustion

Everything going by so fast!
Xylophones playing ‘Flight of the Bumblebee’ in my head.
How am I still moving?
A little bit more time, maybe?
Useless is how I feel
Sitting here and unable to move about.
Tell me that this will pass soon?
I am more than ready for the next day to start
Or for the next phase in my life to begin.
Now would be a great time for life to slow down for just a moment.

“I am old, Gandalf. I don’t look it, but I am beginning to feel it in my heart of hearts. Well-preserved indeed! Why, I feel all thin, sort of stretched, if you know what I mean: like butter that has been scraped over too much bread. That can’t be right. I need a change, or something.”
― J.R.R. TolkienThe Lord of the Rings
