Shattered and Passed Down

Ashes to ashes

And dust to dust

Words to letters

And iron to rust

 

Pictures and frames

Passed down, son to son

Twice, maybe thrice

Trading memories for a new one

 

Maintain character

Pretend with the times

Play a new part

But never consign

 

Be your own self

Yet look to the past

Your life received in pieces

That you might leave one last shard of polished glass

 

Inheritance
