To the Trailblazers...That Were and Are

Here is where we live
Where brave hearts fought to free the land
Where we lie and count stars and night
Or dare to dream dreams big and grand

Here is where we live
Their hardship, happiness and need
Cultivated Inheritance
They cleared the fields where we plant seed

Here is where we live
Homes dot the counterpane of years
In towns and countryside, commerce
Conceived by their blood-sweat-prayers-tears

Here is where we live
And place our foot and fingerprints
To circumstance with our response
That soon becomes Inheritance
