The meaning of life

For what is the worth of a man,
If not the legacy he leaves behind?
Ushered words that linger,
In the blood of our sons and daughters,
Is not the legacy of our fathers mere mistakes and sins passed?

The tenets we remember,
The creed we abide,
Navigating the narrow path of life.

Future that is unknown,
Feared it arrives,
Yet it is not the world which decides,
The life we leave behind,
Broken it divides
Left out hearts of humanity.
Sole flame that burns in each soul,
With a responsibility to provide,
Smile of our own.
