Leave Your Mark


Everyone eventually leaves this tangible place called earth.

No matter how one feels about themself, they will impact someone.

How do you know if you've impacted a person?

Most of the time you crave the attention of those who wouldn't give you the time of day.

And while you gawk over those individuals, there are others that admire you, waiting for you to take a second out of your day to notice them.

When the world is taken from you,

What is it that you want to be remembered for?

The good and the bad all long for some sort of end title.

Some established label that society gives reiterating that they were noticed.

When you leave this land we roam,

What do you want to be remembered for?

Did you leave your mark?
