From Beyonce’s ‘I Was Here’: “I want to leave a footprint on the sands of time. Know there was something that … I left behind. When I leave this world, I’ll leave no regrets. I’ll leave something to remember so they won’t forget I was here – I lived, I loved; I was here – I did. I’ve done everything that I wanted and it was more than I thought it would be. I will leave my mark so everyone will know I was here”
I listened to that with fresh ears yesterday and I realized that that is both my gift and my curse.
