Once, on my thirties, in a very little used road,
by the side of ancient and dark a forest,
I got acquainted with weird a creature,
very unlike anyone I had known.
He taught that we have been tagged with a signal,
that of being answerable for any of our equals.
He said that to as blessed man as I was,
it was not allowed to share with fellow ones,
as little as I had been accustomed to.
It seemed to me an alma mater of humanity,
came from ancient paths of our origins,
incarnate by some of our loving ancestors,
if not by all.
Since then, I have found strength, and my friends,
family and even the world as far as I reach,
I imagine, yet believe,
have improved, if just by a little,
with each new day of my life.
