Faint History.

by Star   Jun 7, 2019


The past has been pressed
within pages, that only unfolds
when stories need to be told.

.....stars have witnessed it all

    I like the imagery of the a writer pressing ink into parchment and having that forever captured (at least that was the first image that popped up into my head). Having that readily accessible for those who seek it or stumble across it, and it being safely kept throughout ages.

    The contrast between this intentional 'guarding' of words with a celestial being that has witnessed it and will witness things our little minds could not even begin to fathom, is well thought out. I think it speaks wonders how the written word might be one of our greatest accomplishment, the closest and easiest way to achieve immortality, or something close to it.

      History is really interesting, one thing though, how do we know if the written history is right and not lies? Or maybe exaggerated?
      Thank you for reading :)
