Remember

I’ve found my greatest fear
It’s being forgotten
No, not like meeting someone for one minute and
Being afraid they won’t remember me later
It’s not being remembered at all
I’m afraid of not existing
I don’t want to be just ash and dust
No way I’ll make history
Can the common person be known?
I don’t want to be famous
Just remembered
But can you receive one
Without the other?
Can I be a shadow
With something that lasts?
No, I don’t want light
Lime colored, spotted, or other wise
I want to show someone
How it was
Now
Without them
Finding my life story
I guess it’s a common fear
A selfish fear
But I want to be
Known
For this fear
I scream out in silence (though nobody hears)
And hope that the echoes reach somebody’s ears

[Don’t forget me]
So, yeah...another one of my many poems sparked by something a teacher said in class...
I write some of my best works when I'm supposed to be paying attention...

Unfortunatly, I think the whole poem seems to ramble on until it gets to the last three lines...then it means something...

I think you're right about the rambling. The first 13 lines hold meaning and they set up the final three really well, but the lines
"Can I be a shadow
With something that lasts?
No, I don’t want light
Lime colored, spotted, or other wise
I want to show someone
How it was
Now
Without them
Finding my life story" don't hold as much strength.

I like the question "can you receive one without the other?" I personally believe you can, everything you create (In art, in a career, or in other areas) lives as a testament to your existence long after you are dead.

thanks, I'm actualy thinking of changeing it soonish, but it's sticky so you can still go back and admire to original one.
