I’m standing her listening to the drip, drip, dropping of the rain
Agonized by planned achievements I’ve yet to attain
Sadly, I acknowledge the feeling of life passing me by
And I question within myself, “What men will say of me when I die?”
Will my biography read:
Yet to live her dreams,
Yet to soar to the sky,
Here upon white satin
Forever silent visions lie?!
So what’s my legacy? What will I leave behind?
I look deep inside but the answer I still cannot find
Yet somehow, I know
I must leave an impact
Make my life worthwhile
Prove the naysayers wrong
And leave a legacy of pride
But how can I do this?
How can I establish my worth?
How can I let the world know…
There’s divine reason for my birth?
The only talent I’m aware of is manipulation of paper and pen
Putting rhyme to rhythm, can this be the means to my end?
Can I one day write the songs that make the world cry?
Can I one day write an ode to turn a tear to a smile?
Can I one day impact the nation with the lyrics that I write?
Can I one day establish the legacy of my life?
