The dead eyes...
Years passed, death is aside
face wrinkled and mind ruptured
the legendary life is at its last breath
Did I see life? I wonder!
With the power of speech
stood erect over all counter voice
scattered all round, own concepts
My eyes, ...were they lively?
Conveyed my life of tragic journey
contested with my kids, simply
to make the old dominant over all
Without seeing life, how dare were I?
Time is up, eyes are lazy
mind got heavy and worthless now
the beats are being counted, no more time..
eyes....over them lay piled my guilt!
