The Dash

Written by: chris lane

The Dash
Your Journey all begins
with a number that
signifies your birth
The other number you receive
is when you depart this earth

But if your living for numbers
you might as well quit
A legacy is not given
it has to be built

In the end
being first and last
will not mean much anyway
What everyone will remember
is the small things you did
from day to day

The dash I speak of
Is not a run or a sprint
It is the symbol for living
and what you life has meant
