A poem on lost legacy

"


Why do you want to poke fun on me on my lost Legacy?

As my legacy never deserved even to be laughed at it

When the legacy is a gift of personal belongings by will

And a gift requires a person who never expect returns

How can I lose something that was never belonged me?

The dimensions of my legacy always had nothing in hold

The wealth that was my own right was taken by siblings

As I couldn't demand even a bit of love from my mother

Borne from clay, my share of intellect also was empty

Thanks to the creator who kept a bit of it in my persona

Like the benignity shown to the lotus who hailed in mud

Like lotus, I also find it difficult to make bonds with allies

Like lotus, what I do is to stare at them when they pass

Hailing like a queen of mud, when I look to the river bank

I see the beautiful flowers and plants enjoy their legacy

Tears fled as streams and bring my eyes down to earth

There I see a lot of plants that live a life of happiness

They even don’t know the meaning of the term legacy

Yet, they are really happy, and then what went wrong

What is that made my tears fled like an unending stream

It is nothing special as claimed, a small phrase ‘lost legacy’

Today, I stop sobs on a realization, ‘that I never had a legacy’

As the legacy is a gift of personal belongings by will of others

And a gift requires a person who never expect returns

And my fortune still on an unending search to find that person.

I still am waiting as my legacy deserves to be waited.

Thanks a lot dear friend
This was a beautiful poem. When I think of legacy, I don't think about material things that people obtain from a person's death; that which is only temporary. I think of legacy as a passing down of morals and values that each new generation is taught and brought up upon.

Legacy is a good word. Legacy can be many things. We inherit thing from elders and draw our own thoughts and path. I believe best legacy is of a life filled with love and kindness. Can't take wealth with us. But we can leave memories of a person who was kind and knew love. Thank you for sharing the the excellent poem.

Thank you Kejara
"Are we not but budding legacies that start so small we don't measure up to the beauty of the sun that has shone even before we came. For as we are relevant to the next person sitting to us we find ourselves somewhat confined in the hubris of others' messes but really...we must never measure up to them! For who we are in life's terms we must only come to it when we are down to our last breath. As tomorrow comes our legacy will be rewritten again. Even though still budding this rewritten legacy will be just another page added to our life. We are a legacy unlike any other, as we ask a star out there at night who they were once before they will only shine brighter before our eyes so will be the soul that is inside of us that is acknowledged!"

"We are someone's gift for sure but are we not already a gift ourselves to this place because that is a legacy worth and deserved!"
