In 300 Years...
Age Rating: 10 +
In 300 years will I be a lost soul
whose story no one has bothered to tell?
Will I be that forgotten old photograph
That lies in the bottom of the treasure trunk in the attic?
In 300 years will the world I lived in seem non-existent?
Just a fantasy in a children's book?
Will my name be remembered?
Or will it die along with me?
In 300 years, will my children and their children
Ever ponder about who I was?
Will anyone care about 'that girl'
From oh-so long ago?
Will there be a museum named after me someday?
Or just a faded stone in dead grass with a bouquet of wilting flowers beside it?
Who will I be 300 years from now?
Who really knows?
****NOTE: My Lit teacher selected 3 students (I being one of them) to write a poem for a contest with the topic "How would you like to be remembered in 300 years?" We don't know who won the contest yet, but I figured I'd show the poem to you guys ^_^
