Legacy’s Worth


It’s not your medals,
nor your titles,
nor your gold bars,
nor your posh cars,
nor anything
money can buy.

It’s the smiles you’ve painted,
the tears you’ve shed,
the souls you’ve touched,
the lives you’ve changed,
all the things
money can’t buy.

  1. You are absolutely on key with this poem Rosema. Things are not a legacy, memories and how we treat people are. Well written. You have a gift for stating things poetically but simply.
