"Why Do I Write?"

I write because I would like to live forever.
 The fact of my future death offends me. 
 This comes from my sense of my own insignificance in the universe. 
My life and death are a barely momentary flicker. 
I would like to become more than that. 
I seek to immortalize the world I have found and made for myself.
 I may never know whether my endeavor has been successful. 
But I shall never be deterred from my cherished goal.

~~~  Excerpt from writings of Reginald Shepherd
