Legacy Unquantified

The essence of the good fight may not be valued

Nor well quantified in the weight of  rubies and gold,

Or measured in accolades with standing ovations.

It may, silently and honestly be accounted for

By the rich dimension of solid integrity and

Ardent embodiment of the laudable qualities

The human race is innately endowed with.

That a legacy, yet, may be passed from one

To future generations,  that humanity indeed

Is worth more than sheer hatred, prejudice,

Bigotry, plain greed,  the profane and vile,

But truly possesses that which is honourable

Purely commendable, kind and simply humane.

Benjoy’s Corner X-5

Lasting Legacy

Be thou not deceived to the contrary …

For ‘tis undoubtedly worth the investment

To safeguard that constant companion, which

Subsists with thee as you journey forward

Through the scenes and storms of life’s sequence.

 

Though its foundation is fashioned early, still

It is further cast, amid survival, and certainly tides.

Evolving into character distinctively defining

The core of every being, steering each conscience

Towards the conviction of that candid courage.

 

Therefore, forsake it not, for want of the

Hollow lure of the flawed attributes, steadfastly

Embrace it for all seasons, even though, the

Winds fiercely billow, or tranquility yet prevails, so

That in the final accounting, integrity rewards thee.

Extol all virtue!
