Exploring Happiness #29- Heritage - Poem by June Stepansky

He loved her for the curve
of her breast, her pretty smile.
Her chemistry responded
to his wanting her.
They did not expect
that their merging
would forge, link by link
an indestructible melding.

They had not expected
that the children,
grandchildren,
great-grandchildren,
that would come
from their mating,
would carry forever
the seeds of their fantasies,
their angers.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

For many of us taking care of our responsibilities demands all the energy that we have. We are often so busy that we are not always aware of the ripple effect our actions have on others around us especially our children both in the present and in their future.
It is important to realize that while we must take care of our own needs,
we should also be aware of how our actions and the emotional climate of the environment we create can affect in future years our children, our grandchildren, and even their children.
