People are always talking about leaving a legacy—
A testament to their history, their accomplishments.
The worst try to subvert truth and make themselves look like saints
And, depending on their wealth and status, they succeed.
Some want their legacy to be known not by tales, but deeds—
A great act, or a terrible crime.
Making a mark on the world that lingers on, becoming legend.
What should we leave behind—
Tales, or deeds?
Should it be both?
And what if we have nothing to leave?
