Brevity Life is but a moment Between our birth and our demise . . . A small dash between tombstone numbers Marks the living of our lives. Whether young or old, rich or poor, All dash lengths are the same, But what will be remembered Is how well you lived each day. You may boast about success in life, but No matter how successful you've been, It's the deeds you've done for others That will be remembered in the end! So use your dash wisely While you're here on this earth, And you will be remembered Always . . . beginning with your birth. But if your focus has been only on self, And you've cared t for anyone else, And your attitude has been rotten, then once gone, You will be totally and forever forgotten.
