Sunday Confessions




If I should die, think only this of me,
How supportive and diligent
I used to be:
I truly loved my family,
I genuinely cherished friendship between you and me;
If I should die, think only this of me,
How tough and excellent
I could be.
I never meant to hurt anybody,
I worked tirelessly for this community!
If you can not see what I see,
Read more stories and study history.

  19. Really good write. I really like the tone you keep throughout the piece and the ideas you propose in here are something I've often thought of. What is the impression you have left? What will others say or think of me after I'm gone? Things like that, and I really like the way you handled something along similar lines. Very well-done
