A bullet has no need for memories
And thus cannot understand them,
For its life is too short
To create more than one.
That one defines it
And becomes its legacy.
One moment of victory or of failure
Determines whether it will be forgotten or remembered
In one or in a thousand minds.
A bullet flies for a lifetime
And may still miss life altogether.
