I Want To Be Remembered… - Poem by Michael Fischer

I want to be remembered
like the legendary sportsman,
who always championed,
in adversity’s awestruck face.

I want to be remembered
like the inspiring poet,
whose words were a stream,
that gently washed over you.

I want to be remembered
like the eccentric musician,
who changed the world,
with his insightful lyrics.

I want to be remembered
and never forgotten,
in a world where many,
are only seen as a number!

    Oh how I love this poem! I think just one of the things that makes it so great is that everybody wants to be remembered and to make a difference while they are here...for however long they are here.
    The title makes you want to read it! You could not have picked a better theme or title for your poem and your imagery is Amazing Michael! Such A great well penned piece of art...
