Too Digital to Die

Too Digital to Die

In early youth my mind harbored grand dreams,
Of fame and wealth and notoriety.
Nightmares of failure all had the same themes:
To live and die in anonymity.
And so, the Internet brought hope to me:
A chance to publish, make my name well known;
A place to share, and best of all twas free,
But I could not foresee how far it's grown.
Words I wrote more than twenty years ago,
Are still alive and haunting search replies.
My public words forever put on show;
All that I shared, still there for searching eyes.
My legacy forever will be nigh,
Because I'll be too digital to die.

It never dawned on me, years ago, that I was already writing my autobiography by posting on the Internet.
