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.
