It is always the delight of ancestors to leave a legacy for the descendants

Legacy

There is not a doubt that all of us will understand
The importance of living live entwined with a plan
It’s like an artist who is drawing on his pad a picture
Each brush stroke will chart that path to the future

How many families can trace that way of a business history
From its inception the dream of a member of the ancestry
Where there will be that solemn oath that in its continuity
Somewhere at the helm should be sprout from that generation tree

There are some races which pride themselves on a tradition
That some member of the family should carry on a certain profession
This sometimes placed great pressure on the selected one
As there is from all around great demands for it to happen

In that era where people were under the pressure of slavery
Even in that austerity still have the presence of mind to think futuristically
So when emancipated had that sense to listen to that mind’s command
And do at the earliest opportunity ensure that they own some plots of land

So in all those instance having this always appreciating asset had some importance
Because they could leave this for their descendants as a form of inheritance
Know full well that they at least had something no matter how small to leave
A thing which in earlier times they could have never ever perceived

So now in these hash times their spirits can rest quite peacefully
Knowing full well they have in their time left a form of legacy
Now it is up to those descendants in these times of austerity
To use this in a manner that should reap some benefits financially

Thank you, Poetic. I have great faith in God and prayed that what seeme chaotic and unsolvable, would be resolved by Him. Sure enough, a blessing has been given to me.
