In the beginning...

I was there in the beginning
And have the perspective of the oldest man alive.
I see through the eyes of antiquity,
And know the stories the elders told around the fire--
Miracles of first-hand experience
And awareness of the origin,
the cycles of ebb and flow.
I am one of those elders,
Since I was there from the moment of creation.
In my genes is the magic of the ages
Passed on and on and on.
It came down from the source
And flows through your veins as well.
You were there at the fire as was I;
You heard the legends of the ancestors,
How they communed with strange animals
And expressed their inner hearts
Using talismanic rhymes
That too this day coalesce before our eyes.
