IT IS WRITTEN
(11/7/15)


we read
the ancient texts
searching
for new meanings
in the old
words

personal
meanings

personal
solutions

but the books
smell
of dust

rotting
translations

obscuring
the original
emotion

the intended
mythology

we feel
cheated

disconnected

our ancestors
had answers

but between
their deaths
and our births
a barrier
of politics

religion

technology
has occurred

blocking us
from our
birthright

we must trust
the knowledge
of our forbearers

the messages
they have left
in our DNA

we must
allow them
to speak
through us

we must
write a new
mythology

a better
history
for our future

pen
to parchment
to save
our souls

those
of our
progeny
