My Heritage


I would love to go

where my ancestors once roamed,

in my heart and soul

I know this is my home.

Along the green hills

of Ireland,

and hearing the bagpipes

of Scotland,

I know this is

where I belong.

My heart aches

and my soul cries out

everytime I hear

the bagpipes

soothing sound.

In my heart,

my soul and

in my mind too,

I know this is

where I belong.

I hope and I pray,

before I shall

never wake again,

to visit

Scotland and Ireland.

This is my heritage.
