LEGACY

Date Written: November 4, 2017
Categories:
 

Teary eyed and regretful they

deliver their gratitude, forgetting

their past vengeful acts carried out,

for being abandoned in their old age

is their vicissitude, reaching out for

financial aid to their grandchild.

 

Having money set aside for my birthday,

a house divided on help to be dispensed

as thoughts of: an empty house they lived

in poverty, fees to be paid for education,

no entertainment to be had as they

lived minimalistically for a while

so they are rightfully mad at

this call for help.

 

Smile and set aside how you were

wronged by association of being mine

turn the other cheek and pay my

kindness forward, it’s my legacy,

I preach, for you were raised in love

‘Tis the only gift I seek this year,

My Darling Ones!

    As the author of a little booklet called the “Emotional Legacy Handbook” which is available online for free, I love stories like this one. We never truly know what our legacy is, for it is only typically recognized after we are gone but written during our lifetime.

    Have a poem entitled Legacy which I have yet to post. Great story.

      I shall search for your book and since I hoard books only, it will be a treasure to add to my library… Legacy for me written by the past (me or grandparents) to the future (our children) is what we impart now if we hope to help create a better world for the betterment of all mankind..Parenting is single-handedly the most overwhelming profession
