Throughout the month of August I will be taking part in a poetry challenge. Today’s challenge is to pick a one line song lyric to serve as an epigraph to your poem. Then, write the poem to accompany it.

“They say you die twice, once when they bury you in the grave and the second time is the last time somebody mentions your name.”

When I’m in my grave is that the end? Will I be gone?
Or will you remember me and I’ll carry on?
Will I have made a difference? Soared through the sky?
Will I live in your memories? Will you cry?
And the last time that you hear of me – when will that be?

Will I fade away or shine in the light?
Will I remain grounded or will I take flight?
Will I always stick rigidly to the same road?
Get crushed under the weight or will I lighten the load?
And the last time that you hear of me – will I be set free?

I really struggled with this one again. I’ve never been a big fan of epigraphs at the beginning of book chapters!
