Great Hall, Edinburgh Castle

My mother likes to say "It's not important how proud you are of your ancestors - rather, how proud would they be of you?"

The following poem was chosen with this in mind.


Trudging through the tangled path,
thwarted, stalled, and pressing on-
once more perseverance hath
the ages won.

Never looking back nor seeking
comforts of familiar places-
ravaging wildness wreaking
aging faces.

Dauntless, following the need
pulsing through their gritty marrow-
  beyond tomorrow, cast slow-speed,
flies the arrow.

Morning ever dawns anew-
places, mortals, hours unfolding,
leave behind the smallest clue-
truth withholding.

Peering back through chapters' prose,
victories found within the pages-
touted brazenly by those
in modern ages.

Whence come forth the haughty proud,
we followers left in their wake?
What deeds enveloped in fate's shroud
their pride will make?
