My Legacy

Poem By Cassandra Boyd

I stand on the shoulders of my ancestors,
my predecessors holding hands that creates
yet another rung to a ladder of great strength,
A ladder of surmountable length.

This ladder built from flesh and bones long gone,
from a pride so strong, a love so far reaching that
surpasses conventional teachings.

Though alone I may stand, alone I will never be,
As I forever carry my ancestors with me.
Just like they have lifted me I will one day
do the same as my legacy.

My child, why do you cry? Why do you grieve?
when you know all you have to do is believe.

when we will grow old together,
we will spend hours on end
discussing the plans

Would You Love Me Any Less

If I told you my secret would you love me any less?
Would you dismiss me from your life
and make me have regrets?
