Will I Be Remembered


I've always known and understood that
i wont be remember after
i die
just like alot of people i will
be forgotten
i will just be a distant memory
and it will become more distant
everyday
untill the memory has faded out
into a forgotten history
i just hope that my time here is something
special
that i atleast do something i can take
to the grave with and be happy that
i did it
do something that only i will be proud
of
because that moment will not be a care
for the people of the world
it will not be remembered
so i'll do something that only i will
remember
make a moment in earths history
that only i did
something important that only i
can do
that's what i need to do
forget being remembered
it's not important
just to create that one moment that i
can tell someone one day
tell a story
tell a tale of something that i did
it will be forgotten and lost
but there will be a place where this happened
that i only i knew about
that's all that matters
i don't care
i'm not bother if i'm remembered.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
