parts of me

they say 
I have my mother's hair
her short freckled nose
 her arching eyebrows.

they say
I have my father's 
arrow-sharp chin
his small mouth
his eyeshape
but her color.

I have my grandfather's
stubby
strong
fingers
and my grandmother's
pale
Irish
skin.

I have the stubbornness
the flair
the introversion
the temperament
the good things
the bad things
passed down to
my young generation.

I have been made
from so many old
wonderful
things
and yet
I'm myself.

a new
unique 
being.

and that amazes me.
