Leave Your Mark on The World

What mark do you wish to leave on this world? What kind of person do you aspire to be? Being yourself can often be seen as a challenge, but it is one that can be slowly conquered by putting forth the very best of efforts. You are a person with so much to give, so much to say. Be yourself. Own your talents, embrace them, and chase your wildest dreams. I have a poem I wrote that explains what kind of mark I hope to leave.

“The Mark of A Writer”
By: Molly Spence

I am timid, I am shy
I am a creator, with a poetic mind
Beneath the surface, under the skin
There’s so much beauty to be found within

I can be talkative, I can be loud
I have the power to be the life of the party in a crowd
Finding my voice in the form of written word
Might be the best thing that’s ever occurred

The mark of a writer
That I have, and I am
An identity, a true storyteller

First life experience, now poetry, hopefully fiction
All I know is writing for me is my addiction

The mark of a writer
That I have, and I am
An identity, a true storyteller

The mark of a writer
A soul full of imagination
With enough strength and courage
To inspire a generation

Be yourself, do your thing
For your best days are coming
Don’t be afraid, take that leap
For any dream is never too steep
Maybe you’ll be a teacher, or a dancer
Or maybe, just maybe you have the mark of a writer

The mark of a writer
Full of talent and love
A person who’s sometimes scared to show all she’s made of
A gentle and kind spirit
Who’s telling her truth and wants all to read it

It’s okay to be different, it’s okay to ask why
You’ve got to leave your mark by reaching for the sky

Words heal, words touch
The written thought communicates ever so much

Be honest, be real
Who you really are will have so much more appeal

Find your talent, stake your claim
On your mark that will never let the world be the same
A light that will shine so bright
You’ll make others smile with delight
Never for fortune, never for fame
Just so that others know His Holy name

The mark of a writer
Words written so passionately
Shining His light for all to see

Being yourself is often easier said than done; it is one thing that can often be so difficult due to human nature; people can be harsh without so much of an explanation, but you must strive to be self aware of your surroundings and the key to being you is to own who the Lord intends for you to be.; nothing more, nothing less. I am a creator, a wordsmith, a visionary full of stories to tell. Jesus gave me that gift; in addition, He has helped me to accept my flaws, acknowledge them, and push through them, even when I don’t have the best of days or sometimes weeks.

Be yourself. I am an introvert. I am clumsy. I love Jesus. I love my family. I love my friends. The true focus of life should be working to create an inspiring legacy. Everyone has weaknesses, everyone has strengths. Push your limits. Spread those wings. Try new things. Live for Him. Serve Him. Love Him. Jesus loves you. Will you dare to be yourself? What kind of mark will you leave on this Earth? You never know, there could be something simply incredible waiting just for you.

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me”. 

2 Corinthians 12:9 King James Version
