Tomb of the Unknown Writer By Jasen Sousa

Tomb of the Unknown Writer

His life came to a tragic end
before we learned of the legendary man
who held the pen.

Why did he choose not to sign?
Masterful material
from a mysterious mind.
When will we discover what drove his greatness?
When will we learn what decided his fate?

His scripture was something to behold.
A man who wrote
some of the greatest tales ever told.

A man who knew
his end was near.
Prophetic perception
that brings people to his grave
just to stare.
His name still missing, alas,
the tomb of the unknown writer
and his suspicious shadow cast.
