Your Legacy Your Lineage

Time takes age and does what it will Man ages and wishes time to stand still. There is infinite turning of the hands on a clock As mortals we hear the constant tick-tock. There is a human desire to leave something behind Hoping our earthly possessions ease our greedy mind. What is gathered on this planet of earth Can not bring us back to our place of birth. Helping others should be our lifetime goal Not cluttering earth before you're put in a hole. God gives us an ultimate rule Love one another and not to be cruel. If we really wish to leave something behind Teach your children to give and to be kind. Your legacy should not be what you can obtain But what your lineage does each and everyday.
