Legacy

The only thing guaranteed

in this world is

We all will die.

This thought brings

a question to mind:

What legacy will we leave behind?

The footprints

we leave behind

reside in the memories

of those we’ve touched

with our love.

Objects get broken,

end up in boxes,

or thrift stores.

Only love endures.

How do you want to be remembered?

“Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you.” —Shannon Adler

“I came to give you love. I came to give you light. I came to liberate you. Your smiles are my legacy.” — Matshona Dhliwayo

“If you want to be important, be the best you can. If you want a legacy, build it. If you want peace of mind, find it. If you cannot make it now, keep trying until you make it, and if you have not yet found what you want, keep searching.” — Saidi Mdala, Know What Matters
