Pass The Mantle

The energy of this boy was relentless. He was captured at a point where he easily overtook the adult pedestrians, as if in a race. After his imaginary winner’s medal, he would run back to his starting point and repeat his feat on other adult pedestrians. This is significant to me because I’ve to accept that one day, that’s what will happen, I’ll be overtaken by those who come after me. However, it’s a fact I don’t fret upon. In fact, I welcome it, to pass on whatever mantle I’m deemed worthy to be holding on to now. It’s not a surrender, that’s why I’m working hard now, to raise the mark so that when that time comes, the same will be expected of the successors. That, I believe, is how we progress.
