Psalm of an Ancient Friend

“Gently rest, my child.
The pure are the true sovereigns.
Oh, how their dreams nourish this fractured sphere!
Their reign is vital,
their vocation a catalyst
for this world’s preservation.
Do not allow yourself to be spirited away
by the impudence of greedy, prideful leaders.
Their hunger is insatiable,
their thirst cannot be quenched
they will perish by their own accord.

But you, my child,
fasten onto your heart
the inextinguishable
the limitless
fathomless
priceless lifeblood
of this Earth.
Those cowardly leaders
have robbed you,
and you must fight
to reclaim it.

Do not be dismayed
Your work has only begun.”
