Too many quotes to pick just one. :


I understand now...

A veil is lifted from the world
and I can finally see
where my feet land
as I tread this shadowed path
alone,
solitary,
quiet footsteps and the soft chatter of
the animals below, my kin.

I understand now...

The way the ancestors walked
was not an easy one
nor a safe one...the most worthwhile journeys
are often the most dangerous,
frightening,
harrowing,
quiet footsteps and the soft glow of
the stars above, my kin.

I understand now...

Echoes of days lost in time
resound in my veins with every
heartbeat, every breath; there is life
after death, we live on through
memories,
family,
quiet footsteps and the soft whispers of
the gods within, my kin.

I understand now...

Result of sleep-deprivation, thinking, and lots of Pelican.

I honestly think you should be doing more of this. Also, great job on finding good, unusual and underground metal bands. Its cool.
