Influences

Influences come and sometimes go
Some come fast, some are slow
Parents, teachers, friends we know
All make an imprint on our soul

Movies, songs, authors and poets
Leave their mark before we know it
Things we see and what we hear
We pick and choose what we hold dear

What to cherish, what to fear
Influences are always near
We laugh, we love, we shed a tear
Always wondering why we’re here

The words you have written
Have influenced me
May the words that I write
Show you things that I see

Who we are and what we do
Is due to influencers that we knew
So be very thankful in all you do
And I hope that my words may influence you
