Gone,
Erased,
Vanished,
Replaced.
Only one, but
Not unique
Others will come
Others will take
Others will become me,
When I am gone,
When I’m pushed on,
When I’m no more.


The author's comments:
I really hope you like this, tell me what you think. I wrote this on the bus, while listening to a group of middle-school kids, comparing their grades... and realized that I was in their place; but now, they had replaced me. Which made me think; How can I impact everything around me? What will I leave behind when I am gone? Will it all be as though I never existed?

From out of the night that covers me, black as the pit from pole to pole, i thank whatever gods may be, for my unconquerable soul. -William Earnest Henley
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil. -the Bible

i dont unerstand all of it, but that's the mark of good poetry. it holds the most value for you, and everyone else sees it differently and attaches different value to it...i think you did a good job expressing yourself. SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION! could you pretty please look at some of my poetry, and give feedback?
