What My Life Should Leave

My life should leave echoes,
resounding unpredictably,
echoes of introspection,
conscience, wisdom, hope,
echoes which sing out and resound
Love not ego, My power to do good
and my power to do harm are equal.
The difference is choice. Be kind.
No unnecessary losses. Listen.
Love is stronger than loss.

Reverberating echoes are legacy.
Attribution remains irrelevant.

I like very much the idea of a life leaving echoes. A very original and profound thought, imho!
