I want to pay homage to those who have been here before

I want to remember that a name and a title doesn’t mean that I stop growing

I want to ask those who came before

To guide me on my life journey

And help to keep me humble

To teach me all that they’ve learned

How to help those around me

How to keep going when things get rough

And most of all how to gain wisdom enough

To pass on to my children

Who will one day be Elders too
