my first try at poetry writing. Hope you guys enjoy. Nothing to complex just a straight forward poem I wrote after watching an advertisement.


The day I die , will you remember me
not for the things I have done 
not for the things I have succeeded in
not for the image I portray myself to be.
But, the person I hid away 
kept in locked away
covered by lies , memories 
and fake memories.
The picture you now look at
trapped in this lies all my secrets 
the next time you look 
see the cracks that lie on the surface.

Hm. Interesting poem-were you watching a campaign ad? I like it!It seems like people only remember the bad things you've done- and the good things people do have to be so significant for anyone to ever remember it. Don't you think so?
