#amwriting  #HappyBirthdaySterlingKBrown #poetry  Do you see my footprints:  This is Me, a birthday poem for @Sterlingkb1

by Tracy Diane Miller

I was born, wide-eyed and innocent,
With my story ready to be told,
The peaks and valleys of my life,
Determined, yet cautious, as they unfold.

Do you see my footprints?
The imprints on the sand,
Each tell a chapter of my story,
For all to understand.

This is me.

I am the blood of my ancestors,
Courage, gratitude and respect, a part of my DNA,
A legacy of sweat and tears,
Their message had much to convey.

Do you see my footprints?
The imprints on the sand,
Each tell a chapter of my story,
For all to understand.

This is me.

I have lived many lives,
In many shoes I have had the privilege in which to walk,
As an actor, I am the history and voices of men,
Through characters, the journeys I shall embark.

Tears and fears, joy and sorrow,
My gait is slow and measured, with so much at stake,
So many emotions grip my soul,
But there is no mistake.

Do you see my footprints?
The imprints on the sand,
Each tell a chapter of my story,
For all to understand.

I am Roland.
I am Gordon.
I am Christopher.
I am Randall.

I am many men, you see.

But the skin that I am most grateful and humble to wear
Is Sterling,
Because this is me.

I am a child of respect and gratitude,
I am a son, a husband, a father, a friend,
Do you see my footprints?
A purposeful journey not ready to end.

This is me.
