A way to explain the unexplainable,
how does one even begin?
Where do we start?
Are we articulate enough?
Do we know what we’re talking about?
They say soon it’ll be hot here.
We’re already in the frying pan,
and it’s gonna get worse
before it gets better.
“Let’s figure this thing out together,”

And when I looked,
she wasn’t there.
Who protects your clan?
What powers are bestowed upon
you and yours?
What battles do your ancestors know?
Do you know your grandfather’s grandfather’s name?
