Only Then Can I Die

I will never die
Even when all I have worked for crumbles
I will never die
Even when fate decides
I will never die
Even when my divinity is threatened
I will never die
Even when am just a mere memory
I will never die
Even when hope is lost
I will never die
Even when am buried beneath the earth
I will never die
Even when Death comes
I will never die
Even when you want me to

I can only die if
my name leaves your lips
I can only die if
you forget my memory
I can only die if
your heart has buried me
I can only die if
your mind has disowned me
I can only die if
you and the wold forgets me
I can only die if
you murder my legacy
I can only die if
you abandon our past
Only then can I Die.

this Is stitched in trust and expresses great commitment. good effort Favour. I enjoyed it
Nice aesthetic diction... You will never die once your works speak from a generation to the other. I think you wanted to say I can only die if you and the world forget me? You can read my poem I too am a voice
