When You Die, What Will You Be Remembered For

"In These Days, We Prayed"

19/04/2012






*************************



On this journey, we call life,
We are all survivers.
Striving daily,
Hoping for another life.

But time,
And the time cometh for us also to die.
When you pass away
What will you be remembered for?

Of stakes, in deeds
Of love or hate
Of either good or evil
When you do pass away,
What will you be remembered for?

Dirges at funeral sites
One moment of silence observed,
Then, altogether We forget the dead,
To truly die.

As memories
Are blisters on a sore throat.
And Dreams,
Nightmares when a sisters body bloat.

We will all die
Later or Sooner,
We never really know when or how.
Yes! We are but men.
So when you do pass away
What will you be remembered for ?

For me nothing and I like it that way. No matter how prominent you were in life generations later have a way of wiping away your legacy. Hitler is still remembered because of many documentaries. If those stop airing he’ll get forgotten within ten years.

But people remember Hitler for his bad deeds?

It is still a legacy.
