“You have a masterpiece inside you, too, you know. One unlike any that has ever been created, or ever will be. And remember: If you go to your grave without painting your masterpiece, it will not get painted. No one else can paint it. Only you.”
— Gordon MacKenzie

 

I find myself to be a collage
of every place I’ve been and seen
in my life and in my dreams
which just may be the same.
I pick and choose
the things I use
to spread upon my canvas
Wins and losses are all the same
the more I play the reality game
the wins sting more I confess
Yet with each colour that I add
each texture both good and bad
the meaning seems to get a little clearer
there’s been much love along the way
and despair from day to day
as the final line gets nearer.
Still I add, I change, delete
clean it up and make it neat
this is all I’ll leave behind
My legacy for you to see
It will be all that’s left of me
the journey that this life defined.
