Saint of Caring

 

Three hundred years from now,

Will I be remembered?

If I shall, exactly how?

Hopefully, for the better.

 

Old files and writings tucked away

Telling the future my hopes and dreams

Child poverty and hunger to end – I pray

Or clean water from the earth’s streams.

 

Perhaps the words lost in a sea of writings,

Speaking of death, grief, and losing people

And giving hope to those who are fighting,

Searching for a life where they can be peaceful.

 

If any title is fair game

And I can be remembered for anything.

I would like – this title – to be claimed.
