Poem: Hourglass


Let me be forgotten.

Let my smile be stricken from memory;

My laughter, erased from the air.

Let time erode my sorrows,

Let age rust over my victory.

Let me struggle and scream

And stand against the tide of the hourglass,

And let me fall.

Let me drown in the sand.

Let me be forgotten.

I was not born to be remembered.

I was born to remember the universe,

Even once the universe has forgotten me.
