Legacy

They say leave a legacy.

Something people can remember you by,

Do it before you say goodbye.

Maybe it’s a thing

They think leaving something behind is cool

To me, it feels like a thought of a fool

Yes, legacy might live a few years

Maybe 100, 1000 or a million

But in the larger scheme of the universe

Every form of legacy will die

The earth will start over

And then, there would be nothing.

Instead, just live for today.

Work, love, play and forget about leaving anything behind.
