I was once

I lived

I breathed

I made history

I happened

I stopped

yet still I was


am becoming less


they say

deleting my honour

flawed legacy

they say

deleting my name

making me be

as if I never was

though I was


but I did do these things

all of them

today you are

because yesterday I was

when you make me be

as if I never was

will you not also

unmake yourself

and if not unmade

what now fills

my vacuum
