Forged of the same material, we race through time and space.
You, faster and faster around me, anxious to break free,
your pull growing stronger with each new orbit, yet still too young

mountains and valleys more prominent with each passing day.
How well you’ve learned to survive the occasional comet and asteroid;
mere shadows of what’s to come.
