How come time stretches in childhood and gets faster as we age?

Slaying the Dragon of Time

Water_witch-2by Abigael24 Aug 2019

Time dies on me with each tick
of my watch, the battery's low.
Killing time - I down a scotch.

Eight hours of work and eight
of slumber, where does the rest
go? - I can't help but wonder.

Time wastes our poor bodies
and our wits. Perverse, I squander
my time to prove we are quits.

I need time to dream, a time
to be, time for remembrance,
and years to figure life's infinity.

The wheel of time spins faster
the cosmic one measures our days
in the blink of an eye - I'm gone.
