Remembered, for Centuries

To the history books they are bound,

and yet it is history itself that keeps

them around

Power, prestige, and wealth matter not. One must have come before the other,

and yet it is earthly glory that keeps

them bound

to our imaginations, and in our creations

they are born again. This life, spawned

from great conflagration

One day, they will look at us and say

“How great and mighty those nations were!”

When our names are forged into history

Oh, how I would like to see that day

when we are remembered, for centuries

(Author’s Note: I took these pictures during my WAMTAC (Walters Art Museum Teen Art Council) meeting, which will take place every Thursday from 4:30 to 6:30pm. I wasn’t assigned to take pictures, but I felt inspired to write. What better to do after looking at art than creating art?  You can visit Baltimore’s best art museum (in my opinion) Wednesday-Sunday 10 a.m.-5 p.m, and Thursdays 10 a.m.-9 p.m.)
