16. Nathan S.'s Heritage Poem

My Family Heritage Poem
Nathan S.

My family comes far and wide.
From Ireland to Scotland and then to Canada.
I come from a long line of corporals to sergeants and even a lieutenant.
We have some family problems
Mold, even death.

Now they have someone special, adopted, and talented... that’s me!
I hope to follow my family’s path.
I hope.  I worry if I will make a good name for my family.
I worry.  I dream what I’ll do for a living.
I dream, I worry, and I hope!
