Roots of History

We think the thoughts of our
mothers and fathers
and their mothers and fathers
and so on ’til the apes

The words of ancestors
still resonate in our throats
Letters from Ancient Rome
still emblazon our pages

We all trace our lineage
to fish climbing out of the sea
We still see with their eyes
and hear with their ears

The invisible roots of history
Weave us with the origin of everything
