My name is not my own,
It is borrowed from my ancestors,
I must return it unstained.
My honor is not my own,
It is on loan from my descendants,
I must give it to them unbroken.
Our blood is not our own,
it is a gift to generations yet unborn,
We should carry it with responsibility.
Vincent Enlund 'wrote this poem back in 2006 after hearing a story. He first published it in 2007 as a part of an Asatru poster. It went viral in 2010 after Viking Vinly made a wall art piece of it.'
