Those Who Went Before Us

28 to Create, Day 22 – Those Who Went Before Us

***
Those who went before us
lost all direction in the mystery
of their ignorance, also known as innocence.

Those who went before us
saved themselves from bitterness
in this bare land
through their lack of knowledge
of the marshes that swallowed them.
