We are a product of our parents and ancestors, symbolically speaking, my father and grandfather would have shotgunned this den, after they finished their drink of gin. They were mean azz old men.


In me are some things inherited,
some thngs unmerited.
Some things that I am ashame,
a few I would not care to name,
but I love myself just the same.

I'm a product of matter
birthed by my mother and father.
Also the ancestors pitched in,
they're also apart of
my good deeds and sin.

I have the steering wheel,
regardless of how I feel,
I must steer myself right.
Take off and do this flight,
not allow the vampire,
or the wolfman desire,
to break out and rule,
even though the fools,
make my monsters drool.
It's best to remain cool.

Especially like this:
"I'm a product of matter
birthed by my mother and father.
Also the ancestors pitched in,"

That we are, Gem, that we are; and we must remember that, from the oldest generation to us, each wants "better" for the next generation...their legacy, our legacy. Yeah, stay cool, friend :o)
