What Is Left Behind

WILLOW TREES2MEMORIES, RIPPLES, REFLECTIONS, SHADOWS, ECHOES, FOOTPRINTS AND DEAFENING SILENCE.   AS  EACH PERSON LIVES AND DIES. WHAT WILL EACH ONE OF THEM LEAVE BEHIND IN THEIR LIFE’S WAKE?  A PERSON  WHO DOES WELL FINANCIALLY CAN LEAVE A WEALTH OF RICHES TO A FAMILY.  A MULTIPLE MURDERER THAT COMMITS SUICIDE,  CAN LEAVE ONLY A  DEAFENING SILENCE.   I OFTEN WONDER ABOUT WHAT I WILL LEAVE IN MY WAKE.  MY GREATEST DESIRE IS THAT I DON’T LEAVE SORROW,  AND A WISH THAT THOSE LEFT I BEHIND, WOULD HAVE PREFERRED TO HAVE NEVER TO KNOWN  ME AT ALL.  ALL THAT WE DO,  OR FAIL TO DO IN OUR LIVES SEND RIPPLES THROUGH THE FUTURE AND BACK TO THE PAST.  SOMETIMES I HEAR AND SEE ECHOES OF THE PAST.  I SIT IN AWE OF WHAT CAME BEFORE ME.  UNDERSTANDING WHY SOME THINGS WERE DONE, AND QUESTIONING WHY OTHERS HAD TO UNFOLDED AS THEY DID.

    • I wrote this after hearing of yet another murder/suicide. It made me think of how I might end my days. I wouldn’t think that I would choose to die in such a disgraceful way. But then again, I’m sure that most of the people in those tragic news clips wouldn’t have chosen to be the “Live at Five” fodder that they became either. These thoughts inspired me to write “At the End of the Day” which I posted in partial.
