If My Tomorrow Never Comes…(Poem)

What About Tomorrow

If my tomorrow never comes please let me be remembered for the lives that I changed.

I am unsure of the exact amount but does it really matter the exact range?

Whether it be 1 or 10 let them remember the collectiveness that I was striving to be

Let them remember the lessons of passing it forward instead of paying it back….Will you remember me.?

If my tomorrow never comes please remember me for the positive energy that I gave.

Regardless of my bad days(which you would never know) I was never selfish with a smile or wave.

Strangers I waved at as if I knew them all my years and my friends? well my friends I always gave them more than what they could see.

Let them remember not my name  but simply my actions that displayed love….Can you remember me?

If my tomorrow never comes please remember me for the passion of being that I desired.

I became hard wired with the saying of letting go. I lived the motto and became higher.

A higher degree of myself and yet a deeper understanding of what truly exist within the simplicity of spirituality.

Let them remember not my outer shell of a man but my spiritual over-flow that yearned to be connected…do you remember me?

If my tomorrow never comes let me be remembered for my personal struggles that I over came.

For I was not ashamed to tell the truth about who I am and where I came from…this life was not a game

Truth or dare were not options, TRUTH was the only thing I sought in living. The truth? There is no I it is only we.

Let them remember that I, I mean WE, refused to let my, I mean OUR, past dictate my, I mean our, present, because I, I mean WE deserved more than past memories so I hope you understand …just remember US.

If my tomorrow never comes please remember the truth in these last words

Live now without blinders on your eyes, love now without walls holding your true character inside

Break free of the fear you have placed around your mind, step out of your comfort, stop hitting rewind

Your life will be exactly what you THINK it to be…everything more or everything less..understand this

If my tomorrow never comes let me be remembered for more than the strength in my hands that built up,

For more than the thickness of my back that stood strong  and for more than the broadness of my shoulders that carried the heaviness of my loved ones sadness.

When all the madness ends and all the smoke clears the space,  let me be remembered as the foundation and definition as to what strength truly is.

And if I am not any of these things as of yet! Remember me as the being who almost got there, for that is better than being remembered as the being who never tried…..
