Your works echo throughout time
Illuminating the history of this world, now mine
Your legacy of thousands of years feels nearer
As your living memory faces me through the reflection in my mirror
Leading armies, wielding words
Seeking truth, braving new worlds
Blazing trails, raising families
Forging governments, building cities
When I read of your feats throughout the ages,
A question, a desire, inside me rages
Do I possess the means woven in my DNA
To wield such work that gleams, to be like you someday?
Can I reach the masses?
Can I lift our race?
Can I grasp time as it passes?
Do I have the faith?
Do I have the foresight,
To claim my noble birthright?
In quiet moments of peaceful thought
Or music, it’s wonder wrought
I feel you near, your blood in my veins
And your legacy of faith—of greatness—remains
Doubt and fear persist no longer
For I know I am your daughter
This heart could not beat brighter
Though these hands could yet be stronger
Yet on God’s purpose I’ll train my might
On His errand, I’ll stay my flight
And when we meet in the eternities
We’ll be together—a forever family.
