A memory surrounded by grief
of a loved one lost
and a purpose found,
it was there that we sprouted this belief
that we could preserve the things we care about
by sharing our works with the world.
Of course, we care most about ourselves.
To exist, to live on in memory,
to influence from the grave.
But how can you tell someone that
they can live forever
so long as they’re memorable
when those memories have yet to be made?
