Today, I am posting a different kind of post. This post started out to be a comment on “Imprints” one of Lulu’s wonderful poems (which can be found and read here: http://luluspoetrycorner.wordpress.com/2014/11/24/imprints/. You should definitely check out her amazing blog). After reading it twice, her poem got me thinking..
What is it, that we want in life?
We all want to leave something behind in this world. Something of our own creation; Children, knowledge, a house, a painting, a diary or maybe even just a footprint somewhere along the path we’ve been following until our time has run out.
We want to leave behind proof, proof of our existance. We want to be remembered by time and not to be forgotten with time. We want our existence here to be acknowledged by the one’s following.
We sometimes even want to guide those, who may follow the same path as we did. Show them where to turn and where not. We want to share the story of our journey, the story of our life.
We want to be, to exist. We want to stay. We want our lives to have meant something. We simply want to matter – that’s all we want.
So, now I’m asking you: What is it, that you want to leave behind?
