Melanin

As the melanin fails and the heart grows weak
The eyes grow cold and the mouth tries to speak
Of coin and work and failure and love
To ears too fresh to look above
Their moment of glory and need of one day
The instant that stuns, and passes away
Wisdom must follow, and fall to decay
And rise again through failure, experience, delay.
