Legacy - by Bob Atkinson

(c)2013 Bob Atkinson

all feeling brought to truth
all legends held for our youth
all trees that grow within our forests
all days of thunder, light and darkness

that complex maze of our lives
those zigs and zags occupied
with our energies so strong
a past which we now look upon

swims slowly through an open mind
suggestions described of prior toil, sacrifice
old times consumed fast our energies
that life force given to us at birth

we stand and smile
is our impact impermanent?
when we're gone what have we left?
did we bless this world with our lives?
or, did we make other people cry?
