Will I leave my mark or will I fade away ?
World will you remember me tomorrow for my yesterdays ?
This inferno inside me continues to ignite.
If this is so...
then why can't I See the Great light in life.
With my soul dark and my heart as ash
I have burned out...
My memory shall last...

This Poems Story
I am an aspiring poet and musician from southern Ohio. The inspiration behind the poem "Cobain's Disease" came from grunge music king, Kurt Cobain. I learned from a detailed biography on Kurt he hasd a mysterious stomach pain that doctors could not diagnose. With this new knowledge and a love for Nirvana I set out writing "Cobaiin's Disease. In about an hour and a half while listening to the Nevermind album by Nirvana and reading Kurt's suicide note I was able to draw on my emotions and feelings and write the finished product you see above.
