Everything all as one
I come from generations of
People I am close to and love
Born from generations of anguish
Prosperity and things that may seem outlandish
These people who roamed before me
Had been connected to the earth as I am now.
As they had worked to hunt, eat, and reproduce—
the same reason I have to thank them for.
For if not for the constant cycle they had lived in
A new cycle would not have been formed
A cycle of life
Not only life, but
Life of the world as a whole
As we all participate in this game
Working with each other to keep this game going
For our kids and grandkids
Until we ourselves shut the coffin lid.
