the past piles up

in my mind and soul

it is the content of my being

and the weight of my quest

as I blunder forward

as every face of those who did me down

hold up from their holes

to see who's joining them now

the past is eternally present

as we all find out to our dismay

threads from one lifetime to the next

connecting us to ourselves

I don't want to be me or you

but rather some pure entity that forgives

its own pain and ignorance

and if we get there

then maybe the Great Forgetting will merge all

we thought we were

into who we actually are
