The Bell Will Toll for All of Us

by Gwendolyn Armstrong

The Bell will toll for all of us

But three times in our lives,

When we are born,

When we first speak,

And when our mother dies.

Morality and mortality are sisters,

And they arise,

When the Bell tolls for all of us,

To forever brutalize.
