Embers of Time

We have been granted our life for a purpose Whether we have discovered it yet, or not There is a reason for this time we are given That gives life meaning when we are forgot Some of us will rise to the challenge And succeed in reaching our goal Others will simply waste away As a lost and forgotten soul Once you understand your life’s purpose And set it firmly in your mind Your life would have been lived for something That glows brightly in the embers of time

A nice poem about knowing oneself and building a legacy. It would be wonderful to something to be revered throughout the ages. Hope it comes to me someday.
