There is a history
That cannot be denied
Infinite threads woven
Imprints ticked in time
Reaching out and in
Part of my skin
Melded into my bone
Dancing within my blood
They speak to my soul
Bravely take hold
The life lead was fought for
I live not alone
For this leg of the relay
The baton I take hold
My feet on the earth
Its foundation strengthened with time
Running this race
In honor of ghosts
Who lived their lives
So I may live mine
