I don't want to become famous.
I don't need my words to be debated,
pulled apart, analyzed
I don't want my happiness to be assigned
or my depression to have a due date

I don't want to be remembered.
I don't want rolled eyes and exasperated sighs to be emitted when my name is said
I don't care if my words aren't mass-produced
Or plagiarized by desperate high school students

Who am I kidding?
I want to be a legend.

Terrific ending. I suspect a lot of aspiring writers feel this way. :)

Love it! That's totally how I feel. I just never let anyone know about what you said in the last sentence.
