A Poem of Sorts

A Poem of Sorts

To write something profound,
be put in the history books

To cater to the masses,
without losing yourself

To capture the voice of a generation,
and leave no one behind

To take a stand,
without making enemies

To see beauty,
never forgetting the darkness

To encompass love,
rejuvenating those all around

To die,
yet be remembered

For what else are we,
but writers, poets, singers, visionaries, dreamers, hippies, and mortals

Embarking on this journey we know only as life?
