Motivational Monday Poem: Genealogical Authors

MM tree


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.


  1. Beautiful and thought provoking Kelly.

  2. Great poem I love it!
