I HOPE…

I hope when all is said and done,
And when my life is gone,
That it is said that I left a legacy,
One so good, that the world can see…

I hope that my word is binding
And a person of integrity,
Such that when I say something,
It will be held in high esteem

I hope my heart be pure
Of guile, hate and vile
I hope I look at the world
Through the lens of grace

I hope my eyes be single
And focused on one thing
Let me not be a distracted
By flashing lights and buzzing sounds

(c) Chukwudi I.
