This is about a legacy.
A legacy by a man no one knows.
A legacy left cold.
A legacy left in the dark.
A legacy..... left behind.

No one asks, no one thinks.
No one hears, and no one cares.

A honest man brought down by power.
Power of corruption, power of determination.

People separated by the past,
People fighting, dying for nothing,
Some hiding, wondering what's next.

Things everyone thinks.
Things no one says.

Brought down for being different,
Brought down for being right.
Wrong for the right reasons,
Right for the wrong reasons.

Truthfully what's right?
Someone that tells you,
Or what your heart says?

Some things can't be determined.
Others shouldn't be.

Fears never faced.
Fears just growing,
Fears eating away at you,
Away at me, away at existence.

Existence that people forgot,
Values left and lost.
No remorse. No dignity,
       NO HONOR!!

A life that's not worth living.
A life that's not worth dying.

Buried deep in us resides a place of unity.
A place with brothers and sisters,
A place of internal rest,
Rest from crime and violence.
Dishonest people changing their ways,
Not for themselves but for no one.

Existence is always there.
Footprints in the heart,
Footprints in the soul.

A name left behind with a memory,
Forgotten in time by all with the
Lost arch of life

Behind a shielded mirror,
Behind an indestructible horror.

Be one within but be one at all.
Share your dreams, share your fears.

Page by page is turning ash to ash,
Focusing on yourself.
Help your family, while helping mankind,
And you'll find that life will get lighter.

Dreams, fate, and wishes.
Are these things some believe?
And others demise.

Who are you to judge me?
Who are you to judge anyone?
Such things can't be determined by one,
But by all in faith and happiness.

A moment of silence for all,
For all who died.
People we don't know,
People that would die for us,
For what they believe in.

A moment of silence for more,
All the silence of eternity wouldn't,
Wouldn't be enough for those......

      Selfless people
      Of selfless acts
