Fast, Faster, Fastest

Fast, Faster, Fastest

A Poem by Arundass TP
"

All imaginary

"
Train moving fast, faster, fastest
On the rail unending, infinite
Some stepped in, some stepped out
A never ending phenomenon.

The grasses, mountains and valleys
Moves backward fast, faster, fastest
Never seen again ever
A never ending phenomenon.

The sun over the sky
Moves east to west
Fast, faster, fastest
A never ending phenomenon.

The earth rotates
Fast, faster, fastest
On it's axis imaginary
Revolves around the Sun.​

Fast, faster, fastest

Whilst the way your poem is written runs its own speed, life whizzing by, the feeling of losing touch with reality is only too evident, it reads tragically frantic. Reading twice, it scares me to know that in the way time is understood here, there seems to be a loss of sight, sound, touch, smell and love for the all around.
Even sat sitting or standing still, time still is.. it's never lost unless life ends.. Which is better, slowing down and seeing a petal fall, a star born.. or nothing, nothing at all? That said there is great power in your poem, perhaps that was intended to allow readers reach a conclusion?

I like a slow world my friend. Everybody running fast and missing the good things. I liked the energy and the drive of the words. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

I like the concept a whole lot and the everyday on and off again bore of boarding a train is important for telling a story. That first stanza was very relatable to me. A great opener...

It's an overwhelming feeling. The speed of time is something you get more and more aware of every year, yet that awareness can't seem to help you do anything about it. That powerlessness is captured well here.

This free verse of a poem really makes me think of my own life: Going at the speed of light, not sure where this road will lead. Everything big and small--things at one point that felt like life or death--just gone. In the past. A never ending motion, which I myself would argue is a heck of lot longer than people might consider. But it does give pause for a moment. If things are already moving so fast, you can afford to take a moment to sit and just watch for a moment. Just because life speeds by doesn't mean we always have to. The trick is finding the moments of the day that make them feel substantial, not just blurring by. I know we like to believe the time flies as we get older. I think time starts to fly when we lost touch to the magic around us. We get so caught up in our daily motions--flying by--that we forget to capture moments that one day will be gone forever, lost in distant pages of the past.

Thank you for sharing this work, Arundass. Sorry it took me a while to get around to taking the time to take it in and review it. I'm glad I took the time to check it out. Keep on writing, friend :)

Thank you friend 😊 Most welcome.. Have a nice day.
Hi. I liked the flow of this poem, it also made me think that lately it feels like we're caught in a whirlwind, where everything's racing towards an uncertain destination. And thinking about this, i came up with a few lines too just to match the flow of your piece. I hope you don't mind.


The days blend together
In a whirlwind of motion
Fast, faster, fastest
In this cosmic commotion.

As we chase our dreams
And reach for the stars
Fast, faster, fastest
Life's journey leaves its scars.

From the depths of the ocean blue,
To the highest peaks with majestic view,
Fast, faster, fastest,
Nature's rhythm, forever steadfast.

Every moment, every day,
Life's journey, in its own way,
Fast, faster, fastest,
A never-ending phenomenon, unsurpassed.


Thats it. I hope it captures the essence of your poem :)

Thank you for the read request. I did enjoy reading it. And I also liked the imagery you've used and kept the theme to revolve around nature. It's really pretty.

Sure, time is where we hold every thing. Thank you. Have a nice day
With age, time appears to speed up. When I was a schoolgirl, six weeks of summer holiday was a lifetime. Now its gone in five minutes. That’s where your poem took me.

We are tightly tied on time to lead a life
