Letters from Up There, Addressed to Nowhere

'The Octoroon'
by Aaron Jones

Say, can I give you the tools to build,
A structure bearing some resemblance to a life fulfilled?
Tell me, have you ever wondered how as you grow older time begins to disappear?
Why, this is because a child lives for the day, a teenager lives for the month, and an adult lives for the year.
Time seems to pass when you truly desire it to,
But wishing it away, well indirectly you're simply wishing to die.
