Life is like a runaway train, It's journey's speed, you can't restrain. Can fill each day with what you please, Keep special ones in memories, Envision only, future days. Timed trip is measured- and relays You can't slow down or speed ahead; So fast it zooms until you're dead. Pilgrims stuck on time's fast track, Lickety-split, no going back. Into the void of endings, turns; Train station waiting, no returns. April 11, 2018

I can almost feel the pace of the train as it pulls out of the station and takes us on this "Licketyi-Split" ride. Acrostics are hard, but you did an excellent job with this one! Wishing you success in Deb's contest.
