To find solace in upturned faces,
The eyes always speak what the mouth cannot.
The pedestal, such a lonely place
And craving for what can never fill,
The heart expands into precipitation and rain.
We are peeling the layers of earth
To dig up an archaeology of time and secrets,
Gently we brush away soil from each bone.
We have found inside of us a voice
Interlinked with the wisdom of generations,
A whisper is all it takes for these bones to rise once again.
