In the days before
We counted time’s passage
There was only
Day. And night
It was survival
It was primal
A scream of fury
Or delight
It was cold
And dark
Til the sun shone again
Life found it’s way
Emerging from the shadows
Reaching with both hands
To grasp at straws
A handhold on the future
Now we see the reflections
Of will be and has been
As a mirror
A face ravaged
Beauty unknown
It’s ours for the taking
