I would've been a masterpiece if it wasn't for the tear,

I don't know why I tell you this, it's not like you care.

I would've been a legend if it wasn't for the time,

Age of heroes has come and gone, all I can do now is rhyme.

 

I would've made something of myself, if I'd had the motivation,

But now, I just lie in wait, awaiting even more degradation.

I could've been someone, or something, I know I could,

But right now, it's all talk, all "Could, should, would."

 

Then there's that "if" or that "but" getting in the way,

I could've been a masterpiece, but here I am, rotting away.

No one even gives me a second glance,

I'm not a famous one like Rembrandt's.

 

I could've been a masterpiece if it wasn't for the tear,

If only the people looking after me had taken more care,

I could've been perfect, and remembered forever,

But now I am just a portrait, of the Forgotten Reaper.

Self-explanatory really.
Just imagined a talking portrait of something long gone, but personified :)
Therefore, talking, really XD
Its poetic life story <3

¿tú crees que si fueras perfecto serías recordado para siempre? A las personas se las ama con sus imperfecciones.
Excelente poema.

This poem is definitely a tear-free masterpiece! The theme is a common one, but the expression of the theme is very unique. Love this! :D

: ) You'll never be forgotten. And we are masterpieces, because of the scars, and the pain, and the tears, that make us rise beyond ourselves.
