Only in a perfect world,
or so its been said.
But, I'm beginning to think,
it only exists after we're dead.

What matters now,
and why should we care?
What are we to value
if in 100 years we won't be there?

What legacy do we leave when
our daughters and sons grow old?
What teachings can be taught
to the weak, the bold?

Let me do a good deed
before I pass through.
Let me help people and animals,
let me do a good deed or maybe two.

But yet, I can't help but feel a little selfish,
Is that all there is, is this evey bit?
If it were a perfect world
It would have you in it.

It does.  Yet maybe...just maybe, you would never meet him/her in a perfect world either.

Fabulous poem

This is very sad, Gemini. I think it is a very good poem!
