When I Am Gone…
When I am gone…
I want the world to remember my name.
I want stories of me to be told in your homes.
I want to inspire generations yet unborn.
I want songs to be sung about my greatness.
I want books to be written about my prowess.
I want plays to be acted about my compassion.
I want monuments to be built depicting my poise.
I want young lovers to emulate my charm.
I want leaders to motivate team members based on my tenacity.
I want teachers to educate students about my diligence.
But most importantly, when I am gone…
I want to be smiling down at the earth, from my mansion of gold, clothed in robes white as snow and saying to myself:
“I did good”.
That my friend, is the ultimate goal…When I am gone.
