Of Accomplishing Something, Anything To Leave

I have not been taught by anyone,
To live a life prioritized in the acquiring of things...
Without striving to succeed in making an achievement.
And...
It did not require fanfare no matter what was done.

But to believe I was in the process,
Of accomplishing something, anything to leave...
Would eventually make a difference.
If not for me...
At least for someone.

we all i think... one way or another hope to leave our mark on the planet... if not through our children and memories they have of us... then through a write a painting or a tasty dish...lovely piece of poignance
