Transcend

 

We enter

the scene

but

do not hang around,

shortly

back into the ether

we bound.
We are just flesh and bone,

in the end

just ashes and soot

is all that is found.
It’s what we leave behind

that may

make a difference,

that may make a

sound.
It is ideas

that remain

after we are gone,

it is ideas

that can make

the world

go around.

It’s what we

think

that matters,

that may be

profound.
The measure

of us

is not we

existed,

but what thoughts and
ideas

did we bring and expound.

What ideas

did we sow

and which ones took root?

These are the ones

that get passed around.
Riches acquired

mean nothing

in the end,

it’s what’s in our

minds

that ultimately

transcends.
