Final Fate

Final Fate

What if each wave was to wash away
All of the thoughts coming my way
And my mind became a blank space;
Of last thought, there was no trace.

In complete oblivion my mind is now
And no one will ever try to endow
Me with a thought that was their own;
Now my mind and body are left alone.

I, on a new path, will have to start
And pretend that I can play the part
Of a poetry writer who is trying to find
A new poem God will place in my mind.

Words come out and arrived in my pen;
I jot them down over and over again
And I always start out with a clean slate
So a better poem is my final fate.

    I liked this up to the last verse. You changed your perspective in line 2 but the word will does not convey that. Change will to I and you have a good line. 3rd line might be better if you changed should to I so as to maintain the perspective. In your last line - greatest and best are competing with each other. drop one of them. So a better poem is my final fate.
