Immortal - Poem by amar qamar

I'm writing this, so I'm not forgotten
Actions and intentions ebb, once the bones be rotten
I once planted an apple tree, to leave my mark
As tall as a house, still unbeknown, still my name in the dark
I once painted a painting and wrote a book
So I can get famous and find me a nook
Though I had talent, it wasn't in my heart
Other talents I searched for, so I could stand apart
During this period, I discovered I could rhyme
A talent well hidden, but there all this time
Eternal is my pen, the quest for immortality my aim
Immortal be the victor, the champion of the game
I was here! ! ! I want it to be known throughout the ages
"He was extraordinary", I wish to be written in the history pages
Once great kings, lie in their graves, many unknowns
Once powerful men, ruling from golden thrones
Nevertheless for those lucky and the few
Enshrined in history, I inspire to be one too
Here's my challenge to future generations
Even after the coming and going of great powerful nations
My words will be read, and my name will resound
My voice will live on, it will never be drowned
