"The Dash"
Crawl before you walk                    
Listen before you speak                      
Think before you act                      
Practice what you preach.                      
From the day you are born            
To the day you know why                
Every man needs a code                  
Certain things to live by.                
When your body returns, to the earth it came                                    
As your soul smiles from heavens sky                                    
I pray you lived a full life                  
Not one which living, meant waiting to die.                                    
Will your name be forgotten?
Will your legacy last?              
How did you spend your time,
Between the dash?
