Starting Over
 


Survival

Gathering firewood, Hauling water

Planting crops, Skinning deer

Everything happened

For a reason

Knowing

More or less happy

He remembered everything

Life is a series of photographs

and disconnected short films

Just a dream

We had dreams

Forgetting

Stories were the same

Maybe it's time to let go

A new world requires a new God

We must be the light

We are the light

Faith

We don't want to let go

We will find them

Dream of sunlight, dream of walking on earth

We have been lost for so long

We long only for the world

We were born into
