Philisophical Ancestry

I, being the single expression of self

Except, I can no longer be expressed as one

For I am many; a legacy begun 

Progenitor of generations to come

Am I the beginning?  No not I 

for I am of another who was of another

I could not exist without the person of who before me was

and you could not exist without I, who before you came 

I am more than me, for my life is not a singular identity

for life flows from me
