This is dedicated to my late grandfather. A man of wisdom and love. I was recently cast as William Seton in Elizabeth of New York, the dying husband of Elizabeth Seton. I based my William off of my grandfather. And I never thought….
Never in life would I take another’s name.
Never did I think that name would be the same.
Taking the past and molding to present,
Turbulence causing by the one unforgotten.
I took his name and made it my own,
Into my grief I formed him from their soul.
Putting aside the fear, unbelieving,
Pushing past the ghost that embraced me.
