Poetry – Day 29

Background Check

Thought about my ancestors

Wondered about the soil in which the trees they planted grew

I pondered their dreams and if they dreamed of me

I wish I could hear them speak

What would they have to say?

Would they be proud?

Yet knowing could be just a few clicks away

The invention of the internet can answer all these questions

Will they be the answers we truly want to hear?

Am I willing to take the risk?

Do I really want to know?

Clicking would mean no more family secrets.

I could relinquish my inheritance to the kingdom

Would it be worth it?

I place my finger over my mouse and slowly highlight the submit button

Waiting
