I am much more that just my pale skin,
dark-brown eyes and black hair

I am more than just my heart
that is the first to ache from lost love

and I am more than my ability to bleed
when I'm being ruined by someone vengeful

Above all
I am my mortal soul,
the spirit that created my flawed mind
and my art that lets me out of my rind

My time on this earth is limited

Who even knows how long
I will stay here with you?

Who knows how long it will take
for everyone to forget about my face?

My time on this earth is limited

I don't want you to remember the way I looked
I want you to remember my words
All that I wanted to teach this world

So please keep in my mind my advice for the broken
and the poems I wrote to tell, what was left unspoken
