Many people come into this world trying to find their purpose or something that will make them be remembered. We grow up with that inspiration to be more than today but as we become adults, obligations get in the way that might not let us fulfill those dreams. Someday we will all find ourselves putting off that dream only to find out that time is not merciful. When we leave this earth, what regrets do we leave behind? Will anyone know what our dreams were? So many unspoken whispers that become screams in the afterlife.
