Writing for longevity

So much of what’s
Eating us alive today
Won’t even be a footnote
A year from now.
But the words we craft
Can matter far beyond the moment
That led to their existence.
We do not write to pass the time
But to capture it
And put it in a bottle
For our future self to read.
Our words will outlive us
Reaching places our feet may never tread
Creating highways
From the heart to the head.
Writing gives us longevity
For a part of our mind to be found on a page
For all the world to see
Even long after we ourselves
Have moved on.
What better path to extend our life story
Than to write about it?
