Ancestors, forefathers, generational gaps
Hereditary and family history traps
Saps from a great, big tree
Where the limbs are hard to meet and impossible to see
Guess I should brush up on my genealogy
Cuz I descended from men and women Committed with a capital C
They fought and they struggled just so I could be here to read
and be here to please and help anyone in need
Maybe find someone to feed
or a group of kids to teach.
To give more than I receive
and only complain when I bleed.
Hmm, still wish I was a seed.
