How Will I Be Remembered?

At times, when I lay awake in the wee hours of the morning unable to sleep for no apparent reasons, I sometimes, well lots of times actually, wonder how I will be remembered when my days in this world are over.

Morbid thoughts?

Perhaps so but even if I really don’t want think about it, mostly because that would be mean that I would have to think about death, sometimes it just creeps into my subconscious mind and there’s nothing much I can do but face them.

How will I be remembered?

I don’t know, really. I can only hope that I would be remembered for the right reasons. I want to be remembered for the good things I have done; for the amazing works I have created; for the generosity I have shown; for the things I have shared with the people around me; for my superb Air Jordan collections and love of Ralph Lauren’s (ok, the last two are so superficial but I would most likely to be remembered for them! LOL)

The truth is, I don’t really know how I would be remembered. No one would know how they would be remembered. The only way to surely know is when we’re actually gone. And that is the scariest thought. After all, we live in a world where pretense is the name of the game; where we people we trust are the ones that betray us the worst.

How will I be remembered?

I don’t know and I guess I would never know till I’m gone.

But if I have my way, I would want to be remembered as a good son that made my parents proud; the best man ever for My Small Baby; a trusted friend to my brothers and most important of all, a humble servant to the benevolent Allah.

How do you want to be remembered?

I know how I want to be remembered.
