Motivational Monday: Grave Markers

Markers

More than names and dates

Our ancestral lineage lives on

Through stories, memories,

And mementos treasured through generations

 

Plots of land mark those who’ve passed on

People loved, despised, or a blend of the two

They made an impact, yet

Has the effect withstood the test of time

 

Debate remains over religious and spiritual significance

Of what happens when death meets life

Does our belief in what happened to the spirit of others

Affect our actions and the lessons we can learn from those who came before

 

Tears fill the eyes while we talk to an etched gravestone

Our emotions, regrets, and hopes overflowing to the energy around us

Do we talk to be heard

Or to hear ourselves more clearly

 

We can choose to keep moving forward

Even when overwhelmed with the past

In telling the stories of those long since gone

We open our hearts and minds to live more fully.
