You are, indeed, foolish. You do not realize just how long I’ve been here.

I was here long before you were born.

I was here long before your parents were born.

Before the fall of Rome.

Before the days of Christ.

Before the wheel and the fire.

I was there.


In the beginning of time, when God said “Be” and it was so. I was present.

I was present before God was even born.

In fact, he is but a petty child to me.

A passing thing.


Since time immemorable, I’ve been present.

Older than the universe

Older than God.

Before time began, when there was only the void. Before birth, or before death.

I was there.
