If that isn't the truth - love it, love it, love it!
> Poem on Starting
> I started out calmly tracing my tree,
> to find if I could, the making of me,
> and all that I had was a great grandfather's name,
> not knowing his wife or from whence he came.
> I chased him across a long line of states
> and came up with pages and pages of dates.
> When all put together, it made me forlorn,
> I proved that poor grandpa had never been born.
> One day I was sure the truth I had found.
> Determined to turn this whole thing upside down.
> I looked up the record of one uncle John,
> but then found the old man was younger than his son.
> Then when my hopes were fast growing dim,
> I came across records that must have been him.
> The facts I collected made me quite sad.
> Dear old grandfather was never a dad.
> I think maybe someone is pulling my leg.
> I'm not at all sure I wasn't hatched from an egg.
> After hundreds of dollars I've spent on my tree
> I can't help wonder if I'm really me.
