“MOST OF US DISAPPEAR” by JTK.CA

“MOST OF US DISAPPEAR” by http://JTK.CA

Most of us disappear,
Forgotten to the arc of history.

Instead of seeking to be remembered,
We should simply be memorable, in the here and now.
Love and be loved now.

Give love, more than seeking it,
For love is the only contagion everyone wants to receive.
If you give it, it will come back to you
But don’t look for it, because it will wait to surprise you,
In its own time, not on your schedule, and not from your pleas.

The more you seek love,
The more it will elude you.
The more you give love,
The more it will surprise you,
Because love is giving, not taking.
Anyone can take.

So don’t ask how history will remember you.
Don’t live life chasing your own legacy.
Your legacy is none of your business.
Your business is to give love now.

And, by the way,
If you think I’m judging you, I’m not.
You see, this, like many of my poems,
Is a sermon to myself.

Dad was a pastor,
And, perhaps, so am I.
