The tired eyes of an old man glimmer
Sadly expressing fear and anxiety
Words in his gaze, an inarticulate tongue
Shaken, cannot speak between silent sobs.
The mirage of existence shimmers,
Evaporating fabrics under scrutiny.
Dissipating life reveals an uncertain end,
Met headstrong by a face revealed behind
Bent-back wrinkles ascending intensely.
The vigor of youth shines strong at last.
