Older you are growing

Older you are growing
elder you may be favored to become
but who would want to be ancestor?
Your name forgotten
one of so many substrata beneath
generations of bedrock
How many generations back
do you know their names?
Their deeds? Their stories?
But did some contribute to you more than others?
What can you?

:- Doug.
