What will be the legacy of those we leave behind?
Will we ever know the impacts we have made?
Will we wonder from beyond?
Will we see clearly the trail of the heart of stars?
What will be the dreams we will fulfil that guided us through trials?
What will be the metaphor to stop us and make us think?
What will be the strands that link to make us deeply aware of all our parents did for us?
What will be the memories of my mother and mothering?
What will I continue and what will I transform?
What will be the meaning of the grass skirt wrapped in a blanket?
Will my daughter remember the dance my mother taught her that she never taught to me?
Will my sons ensure that their generation make two wings of the equality bird flap together?
Will they read poetry and love art for the rest of their days?
What will be the story they reform?
What will be the memories my children have of me?
