legacy



I am him
and my mother
and something new never before seen
I carry his weight and my mother's
and my own never before seen
but the same story of every man before me and every man after
My burden is light for sure
but it is the only burden I know
and havent I said that it is poison to compare
but compared to the beaten neglected too soon touched
but it is the only burden I know
and therefore dangling down millstone strong
to pull me off the cedar bridge
and I lead a charmed life
the cellar is only dark without the torch light
and who would chose to walk in unending twilight
