I am my father's son.

I am my mother's child.

Nothing more. nothing less.

And who I have been

I will be through the end

and beyond,

I am in continuum.

Editing stage: 


motherhood they say is a fact
but paternity is questionable ????
that's why now maidens are being permitted
to retain their moms name
in forms now they ask
who is ur mom not pop!


We can be defined by what we can choose
We don't choose our parents
nor our nationalities
but we can choose
our religion
our partners

Don't know if this what you wanted to say.
Sure we are a continuum of our parents though it isn't our choice.


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words
........Robert Frost☺

Follow me

we are uniquely a part of all those who go before us,

We are the total of all those that have gone before yet unique in that we are ourselves.
We have survived since the beginning of all time or of everything, we are precious to the whole.
We can and do enhance the being that we are,
Yours Ian

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

Well said, Ian !!
