I may not live to see my verses
translated to a thousand tongues,
or larger than human statues
with my name engraved in stone.
I may not live to see my greatness,
as many often die too young,
or hear the sound of tears
of rhymes that went unsung.
I may not exert right action
or right words or the right view
but with me above all thinking
I know more I ever knew.
I may not bring satisfaction
As this poem moves through you
Since I am just a distraction
To a riddle without clue.
