When we're gone, will we be remembered?
Our gravestones weathered away,
Our ashes spread in the wind.
Some of us will be the unknown body in the archaeological museum,
Others will have rotted completely away.
All that's left of us will be our descendants,
And even they will forget.

So how will we ensure we're remembered?
Can we, will we, leave a mark?
Will we stand up for what is right,
What is fair, not what is easy?
Will we make our voices be heard,
Or will we let them be drowned out by greed and animosity?

If we stand up, make our voices heard,
Imagine what we could do!
We'd be unstoppable,
Remembered as the people who made true equality happen!
Leave a legacy to be proud of,
We'd be remembered long after we're dead.

The only way to be remembered is to make them remember,
So lets do something memorable while we still have the chance!

~I remember when it was us.
Time flew,
Four hours,
Spent with you.
Happy feelings,
Fluttering by.
I met such a
Wonderful amazing guy.
Laughter of mine,
When I saw you post.
You had a sense of humor,
You were the star that
I had been wishing for.
Yes, I remember those days.
I do not want to go back, though,
For a million different ways. ~
And it's not because I don't love you. It's not because you were a waste of my time. I just fell for anyone, and I should've thought more carefully before picking the first tom I see. I'm sorry for being a player. You really are an awesome amazing person in hundreds of different ways. That you can stay strong through all you have been through is one of them. You will remain special to me, even if you don't think it. The reason I talk to you is because I care. You will never truly leave my heart. See? I told you I was the pigeon.
I am thankful you found a peacock to make you happy‚ô•
I fell for a different peacock this time.
Trust me, life will get better in some way. I hope it does. And know you are just so very special, as in valuable to the world in which we know. Harness your strength, you have come a long way, and the road beyond won't be much easier.
