(October Second Ninteen-Seventy-Four / Grace Maternity Halifax)

Lessons In Memory

Stand by, await your fate
chastice the unworthy
in their face, slam the gate
court or be courted
the choices are few
remain within others law
but still do what you do
why design others futures
as others designed yours
break the bonds of repetitiveness
delve straight to the source
strive to improve
your own sense of being
as you make your move
observer the qualities you bring
sing a song of welcome
for the newness of life
a death teaches lessons
as does conflict and strife
howl for your ancestors
bless your past lessons
as you move ever onward
teaching daughters and sons
the past learned things
bad ones and good ones.
