This Legacy

This Legacy

So many things to run after
As daily the future is built
But many are running for cover
As being selfish is killing tomorrow

What will be left after Adieu?
A question for all to bear
Who will take the actual due?
As all must go their onward way

Children are crying for leadership
O for the pains we build
Who will curb this courtship?
Tomorrow will speak nothing matters

Will our death speak our truth?
A question for the children coming
What will our light on bout?
Today speaks of tomorrow after


As my thought propels me onward
What would I leave behind?
My words had been homeward
But so many things I could unfold

I leave behind a legacy of truth
Though in this I’d failed too
Many may not understand my plight
The thought of helping the world I alight

As I’ll be leaving someday here
What can I give this world?
Trust in God and show care
Though sometimes this too is hard

Love yourself as none truly would
And do your dos without its worries
I write for all what I could
Most importantly leave a legacy of truce

  1. Aside from the measured rhymes I liked ur bold sincererity in acquiescing that though truth is ur legacy but u’ve failed in it,but who hasn’t?Guess we only keep trying.A writers legacy is the path his pen cuts for himself and history to walk on.Thats ur legacy bro,love this.
