L o n g vowels
And quick rasps
Make the foundation of messages
That has altered time itself

They are the ROCK that holds us together
Strong and invincible
They are the stone tablets
Given to us by God
And his faithful prophets

They are passed
From tongue to tongue
Hand to hand
Mind to mind

They live within our hearts
And the ghosts of struggles past
Are within the eyes of their fruit
Ripening with age

Never forgotten
Never lost
