Your story is your signature.
Authenticated by the life you’ve led.
Signature from signare, “to sign”.
You decide which direction your story will point someone.
Each moment, each decision, enriches the story.
Don’t shun the tragedies.
Conflict builds your emotional muscles
How you deal with it may give hope.
To others now, to yourself later.
We run, we are tenacious, we will even pay money
For someone’s autograph, a name.
Whose value is in proportion to
The emotional context shared by the recipient.
“Sign my yearbook”
So as not to forget the memories created.
Shared experiences fleshing out the story.
“We need your signature here, here, and here.”
Important documents mean nothing
Unless we put ink to paper.
Important moments of our lives
Require us to be present
Or pass us by.
We leave a mark, a lasting influence
Let us strive to make it astonishing.
