Time a duty and honor to share
Grow from roots and blossom
Should deep roots rot beware
Crushed, my history to come

It is our task to preserve the knowledge of the past in order for humanity to grow.

I feel as though we have already lost so much and yet I don't know how to hold on, let alone find it again. A beautiful dream that continues to slip away.
