To leave one's mark
I have this interesting friend that is a bit of a lark, his name, quite appropriately, happens to be Mark.
They don’t need a marker, these mark making Marks, they leave traces of themselves in the streets and the parks.
They will leave signs and markings, and trails and traces, you can see where they’ve marked, all over the places.
One can try to predict where these auto-markers are going, but they roam like the wind, and there’s really no knowing.
One minute they are here, and then they are there, they travel through the land, water and air.
When you think you’ve caught up, they are now off and running – there’s no telling what these Marks are becoming.
Marking their places, leaving their marks around town, it’s no wonder that Mark is a verb and a noun.
You can tell where they’ve been, and that they’ve existed. They are well known to us all, even if they’re not listed.
And so there might be a market for Marks who leave marks around town, they leave them wherever they go, up streets and down!
Because it pays to leave one’s mark on the planet, whether it be in hearts or minds, stone or granite.
Marks can be marked too, if you are able to get near – leaving your mark on a Mark is an awesome idea.
So the next time you come across a mark making Mark, let him in your life, and you will embark
On a mysterious journey of adventures and laughs, living your lives, and leaving a mark.
(Special thanks to Mark Mattei for the “leaving his Mark” concept!)
