Everything just fell apart

and everything just fell


As bit by bit, I toiled away;

building my dream.

Heeding the call

of a higher purpose;

At first, it stuck.. to me

Then I stuck to it.

In the end,

it is all that remained.

And shall always..

Long after I’m gone

and the flesh has fallen

away from these bones

and these bones have turned

…to dust.

And I beseeched everyone

to forget.. me

as I forgot myself;

To not remember me,

as I didn’t anymore.

They will still;

Because my name

shall dissolve.

And long after i’m gone

only my purpose

shall remain.


Like a tombstone

atop a life

that once was.
