Progeria : A tribute to John Tackett

Many of u may have heard of a disease called progeria which is briefly a premature agin. As a result, u can find a 10 year-old child looking physiologically like an 80 year-old person. Usually they die at the age of 15 maximum of cardiovascular diseases. The importance of this , is that the discovery of the etiology and characteristics of this disease, can be considered a big leap in the long researchers quest in figuring out the causes and the cure from cardiovascular disease and this will shed the light more on the processes of aging in general since it’s becoming a big issue. One of these guys is John Tackett who, despite all of his problems, was very happy and thankful for each second he was spending as if when something is rare, it becomes more valuable. He was also a very good drummer. He died exactly 2 years ago at the age of 15 but with a maturity of a 50 year-old guy. Anyway, this guy can be me, can be anyone, because life is short and we never have the time or the chance to do what we want to. We always run out of time.
Progeria Lyrics: Nobils Tobilis Music: Nobilis Tobilis
Life is too short, you don’t notice
As years faded ephemerally
Try to escape you won’t manage
Doomed to take part in this masquerade
We all fall like withered flowers
With fear and pain haunting our souls
There’s nobody here to share your grief
Cherish your days Carry your burden
He spent his lifetime almost content
Although the odds were all against him
Spreading hope and happiness
A morbid fate, is this all he gets
It’s so early to leave this world
And farewell this wonderful realm of mine
I’ve got so much more to show
you all What I am capableof
I’m ready for this bitter end
The moment where the drums will stop
To rhythm my o so perfect life
Mourn me this is what I demand

you said: "He died exactly 2 years ago at the age of 15 but with a maturity of a 50 year-old guy".

do the patients look like old people, or do they think and feel like them as well?
or maybe it's because the way you look automatically influences the way you feel...
good job with the lyrics btw; we need to hear the music!

Hi eve
I think it's the fact that these guys have been exposed to life in another way than ours and with more problems. They had to face life from another perspective, and this build up strenght and determinism. So I think they compensate the weakness of their body by the strenght of their mind.

i appreciate the idea that you brought this up and thank you for the info..
i've seen few images for the same but i thought it was some digital manipulation for the face, i never thought it was a disease..

as for the maturity, well i agree with you nobilis, people faced with difficult situations when still very young tend to from some kind of special awareness to life, and maturity..

yeah in fact they are so skinny. They loose their hair early (before the age of 5 I think) and their health problems (CVD especially) begin also prematurely.
