Immortality

'How is it' I asked 
'Can I live after death ?'
Smirked He and said
'Not in all your earned wealth'


The choice is your's lad
From this day onward
What you do and what you sow
That's how in memories you'll grow


Your riches be sans worth
Your powers be frail than dirt
Your face be forgotten quick
Your remembrance be no sweet


Unless you choose to be more
Than just a life full of chore
Unless you see through your core
Than just whiling away 'a bore'


Choose a path that alters
The days of your's and others
Break free from the mundane cage
Embark upon an inspiring voyage


Show the world the light it seeks
Rescue 'em from deceitful tricks
A message you must yourself become
Not bow down to the dissenting some


Only when you've touched lives
Only when you've made great strides
In changing 'worse' to 'better'
Showering love, you go wherever


When you've burnt on the altar
Of sacrifice and braved life's war
When you've given back to all
Hope in the midst of a bleak fall,


Will you be worthy of a memory
Hailed in pages of history's glory
Then time too will find you mighty
Needless to say, you'll achieve immortality
