New Mortality

Does the tolling
Perplex you?
It did me
When I was ripe as you,
The sound brandished 
Wrinkles beneath my clothes,
Your prime dwindles
Throughout your head, doesn't it?
Its a separate entity - now -
Release - retire your dreams.
Let memories fall
Like hair -
You will be existing - diseased - 
In a photo album
Professing your recollection.
There it tolls again!
Listen to it commit you
Resembling aged, cryptic lyrics
Forgotten by the generation
You never saw yourself surpassing.
You will breath fate.

Does it confound you
That all things end
Their eternity?
