Reflections

 

Reflections

We are the mark we leave
upon others, the reflection
on the ground we walk,
the smiles formed at our backs
as we attempt to leave others
better than we found them.
The best view of ourselves
comes from seeing what
is echoed in the world around us,
not while we are here,
but after we have gone.
