The Steamy Desert
I seek my immortality every day, but in a different sense then what you all have spoken of here. I write, and let my feelings flow from me, in the hopes of immortality. I love my child from the depths of my heart, hoping in her I will live on. I smile at people I don't know, say kind words to strangers. I give advice, however good or bad, in the hopes that something I might say can change someones life for even just a moment for the better. I dream, and share my vision with anyone who will listen, with the desire that when my flesh has left the body, the words of my soul will travel through time. Do I want immortality?? Without a second thought the answer is yes. The immortality of being remembered, of knowing I touched lives and somehow made them better, just for an instant even...this is my fondest wish, my truest desire.
Let my words fall first upon deaf ears before a closed mind...
