"Way to Live" is an audiosonnet written and performed by Anthony J Fuchs.

The poem was posted to YouTube on 28 September 2009, and follows the related sonnet "Avatar."


His insubstantial twin, I gracefully
allow one man to act as if he's two;
one scrawling poetry incessantly,
the other orating that verse anew.
I'm nearly omnipresent, speaking rhyme
wherever viewers seek my expertise.
I never change; I never age; and Time
can never wound me with Her injuries.
I am a form of immorality,
an apparition fashioned with intent;
so when he faces his finality,
I'll carry on with all these words he lent.
I am his greatest hope of cheating death;
his way to live beyond his final breath.
