My name is not my own

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 loaned from my decedents,
I must give it to them unbroken.
My blood is not my own,
it is a gift to generations yet unborn,
I should carry it with responsibility.
