Legacy of pain

I solemnly pass the shield,
Bending the knee,
From the burden heavy,
To the capable warrior.
Let not innocence be your decree,
But pain you carry,
Use the weapon mighty,
The one given,
The one never lost.

Use the words they throw,
Test your metal with the wits of your own thoughts,
Never with fists punching,
Because they do not understand,
It’s the spoken truth that leaves a legacy.

You who come in my place,
Walk on where my step ended.
And know this…
Life is a culmination of choices,
Where one mistake is remember more then a thousand good deeds done.
And those deeds we do,
Always remember,
We do for ourselves, not others…
From the legacy of pain,
Hope is born…
