Odyssey

Racing in circles
Against the clocks of time.
The arrows move fast
And we won't last.
How stupid it seems -
Dancing on beams
Try as we may
We don't have a say
Our hair will still turn gray
Night becomes day
500 years of Sistine
An everlasting scene
Perfection of a moment grand
Captured by human hand.
