Death, My Immortality by C.L. Williams

I will be remembered long after I’m gone
You’ll speak of me after I release my swan song
I want to be known after I embark on my exodus
And you will talk of me long after I turn to dust
I will leave a body of work no one will forget
It’ll be as if I’m still here though I’ve already left
Today I may be human, tomorrow I am a legend
You’ll never meet me but you’ll know my complexion
I’ll become the standard for which you will measure
Because my death will be the reason I live forever
And you will know this once my exodus is made
Because you will forever remember my name
