On the note of what to leave behind
As I run in circles through my mind
I know that I have left a footprint or two
But how the marks are interpreted will be up to you.
For my children I could save some cash
But without passing on financial literacy, how long would it last?
I can imprint in their minds a strong, superhuman mother
But that would be an illusion
As there have been times when I was driven by pain and delusion.
So here I am at 35 trying to stay well –
I want to stay alive.
And for the rest of my days
I will be sure that I leave behind
A legacy of craftsmanship, notes of expression, even the frowned upon kind.
And I will show that it is possible to
Step out of a tumultuous state of mind
No matter if it is self inflicted,
Stuck for years or even the
I desire to leave behind
That far outweigh
The pounds of despair
On any bad day
I have laid out so much of myself,
Continued growth is the only option left.
I want my legacy to be as appreciated as
Millions of dollars that carry families through generations
I want to capture the warmth
The pride the very indescribable
Sentiments that make people want to thrive.
That is how we keep faith and hope alive.
The ultimate legacy.
