The language of age

Power to the language,
the language of age.
The highs and the lows
The show on the stage.
Soft, subtle but deep
Message that it holds
Wounds it does bestow
Ears that it hits
to make bleed, aflow.
A language learnt with age
about age.
What an inescapable cage
this course of time
Living under the hope
Of memory so human
of miracles so awaited
of deeds so unrewarding
of death so imminent.
A thick book of regrets
Ever written by a hero.

From toothful lies
To the toothless truths
All, ever has been spoken
The language of age.

(Syed Ahmad Raza)
