My Legacy

My writing means the world to me
It helps to set me free
The timing and the rhythm
Are the beatings of my heart

My feelings flow on the ink from my pen
Creating my poems to become my legacy
I hope that when you read them
You will remember me

The legacy of a poet
Is in the words he writes
His thoughts, beliefs
His love and life

The love he feels
His fears
His joys
Are all he can leave behind

So when you read my poems
Look closely and you may see
The thoughts and words on paper
That are my legacy

  1. A wonderful legacy to leave behind, my friend. I wonder if writing stories about other people and other worlds can be considered a legacy too. Perhaps..because it’s me in every story. Just like you and your poetry. Love it.

  2. Wow! Really a great poem on writing and the legacy our words truly become!! This is a topic that means a lot to me now and in the past as I approach my, three score and ten years!!! And, with the recent passing of Paul Lenzi. This is something I’d like to share with my followers? Perhaps, you might enjoy my post – I ONLY HAVE MY WORDS – https://thereluctantpoetweb.wordpress.com/2018/06/15/i-only-have-my-words-reprise/
