The Ride

by Luke McGinty


now let your predecessors ride

within your bones and in your eyes

for what are we but things that live

and mark the Earth for having been

a moment here and quite alive

so carry them, the ones who died

and lived before you just as real

as you who now might take the wheel

and take a chance at marking well

with lifetime’s stories worth a tell

to children who will carry you
