Anne Lesley: Shades of Our Past

By Guest Author:

Shades of Our Past

The ancestry we have, we hold onto dear
Who was part of our past, and what dictates our future

Did we have villains, did we have murderers
Or maybe politicians or even generals

An inventor or an artist
An actor or a dancer

Or a hard working man who wades through struggle and strife

We should celebrate the past, as it forms who we are today
And contemplate the future for generations to come

The footnote we make whether big or small
Like our ancestors, will always remain

Whether we like it, or whether we hate it
It is here to stay and once gone, we can never change it.
