Legacy

Work Text:

How do you tell your girlfriend you’re dying?
You cook her a meal
Plan an impromptu vacation
Look into her eyes and say…
Nothing
Give her your company
So your legacy will go on

How do you tell your best friend you're dying?
You show him the pieces
Let him see your pain
Look into his eyes and say…
Nothing
Give him your suit
So your legacy will go on 

How do you tell the world that you’re dying?
Seek reckless thrills
Revert to past vices
Look to the sky and scream…
Nothing
Foster great minds
So your legacy will go on 

How do you tell yourself that you’re dying?
Push away your loved ones
Prepare your legacy
Look back on your life and say…
No
Create the impossible
So you can go on
