there are souls who know the stories

of the sun, the moon and earth
they are privy to their secrets
for they've been there since their birth
.
they know the reasons winds must blow
and why the ocean's wet
they know what time's forgotten
and of things unheard of yet
.
perhaps you may have sensed them
or perhaps you'll meet them soon
some folks will think their stories
are the ravings of a loon
.
the ones that try to seek them out
will fail, for it is true
the souls who tell the stories
are the ones that must find you
.
they will strike up conversation
starting slow, but ending fast
with a foresight of your future
and a hindsight of your past
.
they know who owes you favors
and they know who's in your debt
they know the truths that you have grasped
and what you'll never get
.
they know what light shines out of you
and where that light is shed
the souls who know the stories
are residing in your head
