Anything and everything,

Will fall into obscurity,

The darkest of the darkest sin,

 Epitome of purity,


Tragedy hits your home,

And all the worlds in chatter,

The more the sun rises and sets,

To them it doesn’t matter,


You can be a legend,

If only to your friends,

Yet time and distance fast at work,

Will make sure that it ends,


Place a value on yourself,

Let others see it too,

A rusted penny’s meager worth,

Will soon be more than you,


You can be an evil soul,

A demon in the meat,

Yet as the world ye turn and turn,

They’ll soon forget your feat,


It does not matter who you are,

Your pride or insecurities,

Like the star that fell so far,

You’ll land inside obscurity,
