Generations


My Blog Can Beat Up Your Blog






great grandfather died
in the mines of this old town
generations of my grandfather’s
line of blood, haunt the mountains
headstones i haven’t visited
 going on thirteen years now
strange to some, the reasons why
i walk past Sifford Cemetery
and pass on by
so many chances to get away
crossed my mind ever now and then
far from trapped, i feel free
almost every part of me, is here
nobody can truly know
how far  promises will go
made between a 5 year old, and
the only daddy she ever would know
remain proud of this home
i am
