Motivational Monday Poem: Genealogical Authors

MM tree

ANCESTORS

I carry with me the genetic links to my ancestors

But the path I walk is mine alone to traverse

I honor their past, the struggles and triumphs

Yet I journey on towards an unwritten future

 

Their stories overflow with potential

Yet mine remain at the mercy of the eraser

I yearn to know more about the spirits long passed

While I refrain from letting ones still here from getting too close

 

What will generations to come tell of my story

I can’t suppose to know, nor should I

I can only write my way forward

While I add a chapter to the stories of genealogical authors.

I am a writer, singer, jewelry designer, and theatre enthusiast. I use various forms of artistic expression for personal reflection, community discussion and creative inspiration. My premiere novel encapsulates all of the above. Follow along on my journey towards an artistic career!
