Ancestry (poem)


Adventurer’s journey of doubt

Searching for truth and being

Curiosity and nostalgia to tout

Great time of lingering last

Faces of dreams are lost and dashed

Unearth the legends of the past

Decrepit photos of profound detection

To examine, to infer, to opine

Clandestine clues of ancient times

Peer deep into their face and eyes

Depth of wrinkles your answer lies

Of tragic lows and romantic highs

Span the bridge of floating clan

Boats only embrace or evade

Glean your sagas quick you can

Chronicle to ponder past life’s intent

Sequels parade while memories frayed

 Legacy you are to life yet made
