Born here of parents born here from parents the same, and their parents the same,

from Walt Whitman – Song of Myself on Rap Genius

Meaning

Whitman is acknowledging that he is part of the chain of infinity that we all are, the one thing we all have in common with one another and our parents is that we were born to them and they were born to parents of their own.

Shades of this line can be found in Inherit the Wind.
