Epitaph For Myself

In love with words was this one
With a desire to influence the world
Always sad when goals were not won
Yet faced life with determination hurled

The epitaph is a note meant to appear on a tombstone. From the Greek, epitaph means “upon a tomb.” Since it has to fit on a tombstone, this note is usually brief and often rhymes. Some epitaphs are funny;¬†most are serious. Most try to get the reader thinking about the subject of the tombstone.
