Epitaph of a Writer

from nothing she came, to nothing she returned. 
for there has never been two ways about Dead. 

but the legacy she left, remains. 

pages kissed by the age of her life, 
threatening to spill over with words 
wrenched gracefully, painfully from her heart, 

lives hungry for release through
powerful fables that expounded souls, dark and light.

and among those stories, those lines, those words, she walked forever.

  8. Our words, our lines are our legacy. And while we fade to dust we are eternal in our words.

  9. "for there has never been two ways about Dead" - well, unless you are a Hindu I suppose and then Death is a four-lane interchange, no tolls. Well, not many, I vouch.

  12. I wonder, if I were to have an epitaph, would it read, "Born to write, dead without writing" :P
