How well do you remember your past? Then why don't you remember your time as a god?

We Were Once Gods

 

We were once Gods,

living high in the mountain tops

Free of order, roaming the free land,

The day was young, but it had yet to grow,

Giving time the opening to run aimlessly

 

But then the day grew old,

Time limited itself, order became my captor

holding me with its bare hands as time marks my new boundaries,

I now sit on a flat land with no ups and downs

Restricted to travel a day's worth abroad my new land,

Never again are we to reach our beloved land

 

The mountains were high

And the Greenland was low,

Never again we were to access our beloved land,

Foreign to us as we now know it,

But still strong in our roots

To only serve as a reminder to what kind of life we once lived,

As our only option, we helped these new Gods grow,

Nurturing the Gods because they remind us of what was once ours,

 

For we too were once in their land,

As we had fallen from the mountain tops,

They will do accordingly,

Side by side in the land where time age,

No longer in the Mountains where youth persist

For this is the life of us Gods
