I’ve never really feared death
Not even the idea of it.

What bugs me is if I die
today, tomorrow, or some distant future
I’d be nothing but an empty person
No contribution or sparkle added to the night sky

I’d be remembered for nothing
Just a regular kid with dreams, dead
with no greatness to leave behind

Insignificance is what I fear most.
If I even mattered to someone else’s life.
Or was I just a passing ghost
trying to waste and haunt time.

Painting by Pietro Saja
