Will NotMature

I will not be forgotten
I will not be some scar
on the surface
of the Earth
not some wound
that doesn't bleed
not a scab
that doesn't come off
I will not
fall off the planet
like I never existed
like I never mattered
I will not
be one star
in the universe
I will be thousands
spread through miles
and miles
I will not
be nothing
after centuries
of being something
I will not
be a footnote
at the bottom
of the page
in a book
I will not
be a word
or a phrase
that is left
in the past
I will not
be the past
I will be everything
there is to be

The End
