A Poem by CRZ

Live as today your breath expires 


But learn to maintain an everlasting fire 

The fire will galvanize people, tribes to create stories 

& share them to others. 

Leave this earth gracefully as yourself 

Guide those by your own trials & errors. 



Your knowledge and courage won't be forgotten and lying with the dust

Very good poem. It is written in such a way that it can be implied multiple different ways and all of them make sense. I intterpruted it as live a life worth remembering. It flowed very well and your word choice was excelent. It was just overall a fantastic read.

Nice piece. Wise. Live and enjoy life for it passes, only a legacy can be left behind in the end. That's what how I understand this.

This is wonderful! I love how you changed both font sizes and styles in this piece. Although the last line is the smallest, and visually the least noticeable- it is in my opinion- the most powerful line in the piece.
Great write!
Thanks for sharing :)
