Will I be a historical figure, or simply be forgotten?

Eternal Words

Will I be a historical figure,

or simply be forgotten?

Will my writings take off,

and live longer than I?

My spirit still be felt,

long after I die?

Or will that just be it,

the end of me,

the world not knowing,

who I tried to be.

I’d like to leave my mark,

on the pages of history.

These works I create,

are for the world to see.

But doubt lingers still,

ever strong inside.

Am I really good?

Or is it foolish pride?

People follow my work,

and it makes me glad,

but it’s never enough,

and that makes me sad.

Yet to live past my death,

that I’d like to do.

Are you the same?

Do you want that too?

Then write with me,

we can feast on hope,

it keeps darkness at bay,

and helps us to cope.

Try to remember,

for as long as you can.

My words are eternal,

but I’m just a man.
