Legacy

The story we write upon our hearts
and theirs
is the life we live
It’s our soul song
Our dance
Our smile
It’s our legacy
And I don’t believe our legacy includes
Our politics
Our religion
Our “we are right and they are wrong”
Our story
Our legacy
It can barely be put into words
because
often
it’s the feeling we give
and receive
It’s the joy we give away
A hope we sometimes lose
and watch grow again
Its the essence of who we are
and knowing who we all are
It includes two words:
Radical.
Humanity.
And includes a question
The only question
that will ever matter
And the only legacy
the world craves to the core
Did
you
learn
to
love
?
And every so often,
I am reminded
by my boys
what truly matters
I’m still learning
this little
BIG
everything
word
LoVe

Blogger with a thing for love and hope and grace and adventure. Wrote a Children's Book. Creative. Work in a homeless shelter and treatment facility. Every day I hear the words "I just can't do this anymore" and I remember when I whispered those very words. And I remember hope that whispered through my soul from stories like yours. We all have one. A story. We are more alike than different.
