Legacy

Legacy

A Poem by Aries
"

What do we leave behind when we're dead?

"
 How will you die?
perhaps by a train, or a stranger with a vengeance
or by your own hand
or by your brother's wish
Is your death in demand,
to be rejoiced?
When will you go?
A natural death is one we don't choose
while an unnatural life is an easy one to lose
oddities are easy to know
Why?
if your unnatural life lends to reasons for this
if your death should become a fable, a myth
  a reason enough if they remember you
and tell your tale
So where will you rest?
silken ashes to four winds
on cold concrete or six feet beneath
does it matter?
there is no poetry in death

...and yet so much in life.

How and when and why indeed. What are we even doing to make it all worth it?

I hope you're finding those notes in living that result in grand ballads after death my friend. Legacy is ego, but for those who earn it, it's pure tears and inspiration for the living. It's life.
