Our heritage is like the wind,
moving unseen through the trees;
yet, leaving an impression
amongst the sands of time,
along the beaches of distant shores,
and the deserts of the world.
Are we amongst the souls
whom may make the claim to be
children of G-d, under the heavens
that He created, before the dawn of history?
If so, the fruit of our efforts
to change ourselves for the better,
and lend a helping hand to others
must prevail over and against
the selfish urges within ourselves,
that have the capacity to sweep
away our best intentions,
while we create a house of cards
to please our own ego.
