I have been ancient since I was new.
My bones are Paleolithic, my blood thick with star dust, and my eyes
stand witness to the downfalls of hundreds of civilizations though they are only decades old.
I am cosmic,
I am divine,
and I am so terribly naïve.
But even the gods had to learn the rules of the universe, that to love
is not to own; that fear can hurt more than courage;
and that black and white are the same thing if you know how to see them.
My heart has hurt for a thousand eons to learn these truths
and will ache unto eternity if they remain, hidden, behind
May my words resonate from ancestor to newborn
and bring only light and love
into the chasm that man has wrought into the world.
