The Baton…simple thoughts of tomorrow

Arising from the ashes,

Blazing in magnificent brilliance,

We find the young ready to flourish.

Hope is not lost.

It is alive and well in the hearts and minds

Of those who follow in our footsteps.

Yet, theirs is to construct a new path,

As ours is surely worn and will expire.

We have served our time well.

They have new ideas to explore,

And, they too, will leave a legacy.

Let them spread their wings

And usher in what’s yet to come.

What we never knew, we may never know,

But we have lived and conquered

As best we can.

It is time to hand off the baton.
