On The Death Of A Legend

On the death of a legend

I sit and wonder what can I do

who can I be, what am I meant

to become?

What is my purpose, my destiny

my calling, my role in this play

called life.

Are the cameras still going to be rolling

Or will the tape be cut short

Will what I have done so far be well

received, will it be valuable or will it

be thrown out and be deemed

unsatisfactory?

I’d rather not know

But if I must, If I could, If I may

I want my life to be a shining example

And not a burning shame of warning.

A cautionary tale of the corrupt and lost.

No… I want to be safe from the claws of death

Instead I want immortality, in the books of time.
