They get to live to see

The few steps I take

But they still love for me

To have my lifetime break

Until they finally many a me see

They look back wanting to have me again


I am also with a heart

A heart which needs to extension gain

Every second’s death breaks my heart

Every minute’s extinction gives me pain

The hourly killings are like knives in my heart

The daily death makes me go insane

The weekly extinctions hit me like a heavy bat

I have to kneel to clear my thinking bane

Now it is a confusion how younger ones push me

And older ones hates to see me go

Alas! My life is ending

And my last step hangs in the air preparing to join the other

Time never allows me to overstay my welcome


So I leave

I hope those who were left in me stop whining

Because they get to see many a me
