Poetry: “Descendants”

A thing on genealogy, ancestry, where we come from… Our roots.

***~***~***~***

Descendants

I am the sum
Of my parts
The accumulation
Of generations
My roots reaching
Back into the past
To Germanic tribes
And Viking traders
Explorers of their day
Their branches
Stretching out
Into descendants
Just like me
A vast exodus of people
Generals of armies
And simple farmers
I am the sum
Of all of my parts
All those branches
Reaching back
