My Parents Were The Genesis

My parents were the genesis
Of all I have become,
Their hopes and dreams,
Immortality,
Vested in the son.

Father gave me purpose
Skill at work and play,
Mother gave me love,
Home,
And held me every day

My parents made the sacrifice
To help me find my way,
Their toil and sweat,
Prayers,
Inspiration to this day.

I haven’t always met those hopes,
I’ve stumbled and I’ve strayed,
I left the path,
Temptation,
But all those debts I’ve paid.

I have the pride of family
For the man I have become,
The hopes and dreams,
Immortality,
Wished upon the son.
