That has always been the human downfall.
You came to us in your shining armor
And you were lost looking for the promised land.
We knew who you were
And all you would bring, there was a prophesy.
And despite knowing that
We extended our hands in friendship.
You raped us
You stole all that we had and knew
And you cut off our extended hands
Of good will and brotherly love.
You taught us how to hate
But you also taught us how to forgive.
Its all about our interconnection.
You see, we were the children of the
Land sea and sky.
In essence, you are me and I am you.
We are all things in the realm of this
And within both of us is the
Linking us together.
And in the aftermath,
Now you and your conquering ways are gone
And we are still here.
The irony is that you aren't really gone
We have absorbed all of you.
You are running deep within
The blood of our children
And you aren't lost anymore.
In a way, even though you were lost
You have come home.
Isn't the Great Mystery wonderful?
Now we are truely interconnected
Part of one another, inseparable
For all eternity.
