old things...

old things
often lie
in some silent corner
uncared for

old things are
to be forgotten
to be left behind by us
we have to keep pace

old things are
to be come across
once in years
& forgotten again

old things
gather rust
& even if they don’t
they are to be done away with

old things
cannot deserve
our attention
we are busy

of the old things
a few are
antique & immortal
like the ‘monalisa’

but what of those
which are not,
which go gray
and white with time

old memories
old people?
