In the beginning, the twilight years 
seem even further than the horizon, 
and then slowly, very slowly, childhood 
eases into teenage years, the twenties 
and the pace starts to quicken, 
the end getting closer and closer and closer, 
over the cusp of middle age, then gathering speed, 
fifties, sixties, seventies and beyond, 
less years left than you have lived, 
dwindling time to right wrongs, settle scores, 
to answer honestly all the whys and wherefores, 
to balance your accounts, to close your book, 
after one last over your shoulder look.
