What I Left Behind ~ Gcwali Khoza

If I should die, think only this of me
I was human
I was never as brave as I wanted to be
I couldn't end world hunger or go into outer space
I couldn't save the world
I was just one face, one girl
But

I was human
I could run as far, jump as high and sing as loud
create new worlds, explore vast lands
and fight with a golden sword at hand
I was a human and in was proud
If I should die
then so be it
