words are bells
let them ring!

to grow old is to lose

sense by sense(islands-waters rising
a sense of panic in a besieged city
eyes grow dim(even with glasses
you can not hear what they are saying

it is as if you are a hostage in your own city skin
ransom note asks for time(and you have none left
distance between people,and remembering
gaps between both people and events

it does not take long to be old
some children (before their time
some "adults"take all their lives
and are gone before they can remember

it is the process that corrupts-
everything you see,hear,know,feel,touch
age is a tyrant that rules by force
dictates all procedures

and when you realize you have no choice
age and time conspire-to steal your voice
