Ripple

The present always comes,
But it never arrives free.
It arrives each day wrapped
In the chains of our past.
~
It is always past decisions
That presents our choices of today.
And all those decisions
Was not all made by us.
~
Parents, friends, loved ones
Hated ones, and unknown ones.
All have made choices
That forced us to choose.
~
Who our Mothers decided to mate
Brought us into our very being.
How many years did others
Decide where and how we would live?
~
Their decisions brought our realities
Into their existence
Even more so
Then we ourselves.
~
Now that we walk apart
From our parents
Do not think for a second
That we are not bound to them.
~
It was through their ways
That we came into our ways.
It was their idea that
Led us to our ideas.
~
It takes more than a
Ripple On the surface
To affect the sediment
On the bottom of the lake.
