Lasting Legacy

They will be my lasting legacy

Lasting Legacy

Looking up the word legacy: Something,

From the past associated with.

That is handed down or remains.

From a previous generation or time.

That is outdated or discontinued.

Do I have a legacy,

Never anything concrete.

Have I done anything?

Important enough, no.

Not a lasting legacy.

Of my accomplishments,

Nothing stands out or screams.

You have done this,

To prove you were here.

Not a lasting legacy.

Thoughts rattle and

Bounce inside my head.

Never saying anything,

That communicates to me.

Not a lasting legacy.

Pondered almost daily,

Money none to leave.

Not from generations past,

Nil significant to hand down.

Not a lasting legacy.

Who will ever know,

I sat upon this place.

No mark left behind,

Mother Nature the only one.

Not a lasting legacy.

Hit with an epiphany,

My legacy abundant.

Being here on earth,

I lived with integrity.

Maybe I do have a legacy.

Family and friends left behind,

Memories of previous generations.

Money made or property,

Not spent or gone.

Body outdated /discontinued.

Realization very evident,

Life's yes I touched.

Family and friends,

Souls I leave behind,

Memories will remain.

When called away,

Nature's beauty loved.

Integrity, respect, caring,

Life fully lived.

Souls entrusted,

They will be my lasting legacy.
