Others Are And Will Be More Immortal Than Me - Poem by Shalom Freedman

They have been filmed at earlier times of their lives
There are records of how they looked and spoke
Which are digitalized for the foreseeable future-
My life has gone unrecorded
How I looked and spoke through the years
Will never be seen or known-
I let myself die
When I could easily have provided
Material for my remembrance-
Others are and will be more immortal than me
However my words more remembered or not-
I thought so much about my ‘remembrance'
But I missed the technical tricks
And because of this ‘failed'-
I could have given and left far more of myself
And I did not-
Perhaps no one will care
And it does not matter
But it was a goal of mine
Means were available
And I failed to properly make use of them-
I could have given more of myself
And I did not.
