Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. Carl Gustav Jung


A Heritage Revived

I am the sum of all that was
Yet to my face...... unknown
The past is dead, and yet it does
Clue vestige...bearing shown

Ancestery of carriage
Thru vessel that I wear
No faults would I disparage
Or drown in vain despair

Despite appearance given
Thru no choice of my own
This is the skin I live in
The time my seed was sown

I'm miles short of perfect
But blessed to be ..... alive
And yet the mirror does reflect
A heritage revived!!
