Who Do You Think You Are?

PROMPT: Open Prompt

1
 

Breaking ground
in silent reverie
each step creating the path
my ancestors will tread,
following genetically drafted
drifts of life,
I take another step.
One lane of life's super highway
laid out at my expense,
yet I'd have it no other way.
Each new vista, crests against a gentle sun,
The verdant growth, so rich, fecund
a jungle of challenges and trials
making my story a journey of discovery. 
My forebears grounded my foundations in their dreams,
goals met and lost 
and I keep trust,
forging ahead with joy and trepidation,
creating a road to my homecoming.

I also write under Banjodog.
