Leaving A Legacy Of Goodness - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Money changes everything as long as you're not greedy
and keeping it selfishly to yourself, you cannot take
it with you.

Why not leave a legacy of goodness, helping the poor
even after you have died, leaving your fortunes to rot
and be of no use in the world, that would be a sin.

Make a difference, leave a mark, no need for recogni-
tion or fame, just do it anonymously, for it will be
multiplied back to you in more ways than one.

A little ripple in time helping poor and unfortunate
people in our world, continuing to grow into larger
waves until covering everyone with a blessed freedom
and no more poverty or hungry children or people.
