LEGACY

Legacy



Often we look to others

For our value,

Self - worth.

We look to acquire

It through wealth

Through our work ethic.



How misguided we get

To look to the directs of others

You only know your heart,

Your worth is within.



Most waste their time

They think not on value –

True value.

Generations come and go.

With a passing elder

Goes a pillar of strength.

Buried with them

Goes their ways, wisdom.

The true strength of a man

Is what remains

What he was known as.



We all have self worth

The question is

Do you value yourself?

With honest integrity?



Forget the measures of society

That matters not

Where the concerns the heart.

We can chase the wind

Illusions, dreams,

Fantasies.

It all is nothing.

But a man’s true value

Is within his soul.

Once you have anchored that

You can branch out

Into a solid tree

With deep roots

That will go down

Into the lives of others.

Your legacy will become

All that you have left

Not taken.
