what do you say

my house where I was born
is in shambles
I can’t demolish it any way
as some day they will want to know

all about my birth
place of birth


final death…
where I was exhumed
to amass such wealth of knowledge
none gave merit to
when I lived….

now they all want to earn a dollar
a bit of pounds
and have many rounds
to find where the parents
made good of their conception
which evolved around

an unsung hero….

till today…

A sad piece of being lonely, if so then you are so free to join us here in thought and talk.
The past will fade even with your greatness as all people we are here to learn not to inherit the Earth it is for us to use and then move on, we will not remember all people, how many famous people know you, or do you know..
I was talking about this to my Son and it seemed to be going over his head as to what to do with my writing etc:
We have a choice, live for the now and live it to the best of your ability and be thankful that there are some that will remember a "Loved" and a "Ian.T"
Take care young Bard by the way the write was OK lol. Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

Thankful that there are some that will remember

a "Loved" and a "Ian.T"
