This life is but a mist that dissipates in the air
The only thing that lasts is the legacy we share
It is built on the foundation of who we are and what we do
Plus where we've been and the things we've been through
It's the stories of our lives, the accomplishments made
The roads, the sidewalks, the highways we have paved
Leading us on a journey, so those after may live a better life
One filled with more blessings as to give no room to strife
Yes, we must be careful in the paths which we choose
When it comes to our legacy, we are not the ones who will lose
So allow yourself to think and take a deep breath
Is your legacy going to be a hindrance or a wonderful success
