4G's


I stand on the shoulders
Of three generations.
My generation, is the fourth
My ancestors prayers and
Perserverance coupled with sound wisdom
Helped to open doors and
Lifted me as many others
From the bottom
Known as the floor
There's a purpose
For each generation
A silent vow
A desire to do
Somehow
At least,
Just a little
More
To go higher
To dig deeper
To search and explore
Now the three
Prior generations
Have gone
To a better place
Yet their truths lives on
Their victories are lefted,
is to admired and
To be shared
Their courage
Is as wind
Beneath my wings
Their strength
I shall forever adore
All of the above
Is what I
Term as
Generational Bonding
Genuine Love

Poet's Notes about The Poem

My great aunt died 2/14/2013- she was 96 years old
She lived longer than my mother and my grandmother.
She was as a second mother to my mom. Also many others
She never bared children. She was my grandmother's
Best friend also. (2) Two out of My great grandmother(6) six daugthers.
I will forever love and remember each of them.
Lying tongues shall cease. Yet the truth never dies

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
