We are building
our own little place of wisdom
and let ourselves be guided
by the Old Ones along the way

Who are the Old Ones, 
you might ask

We just know that they are here
And no one has the right to say
they’re not

Maybe we ourselves will be, some day, 
the Wise Ones
We already carry the wisdom
we need along the way

It is our task to provide the path
for the Old Ones to walk among us
It may be slow but it will see 
the light of day
of our right to say

That all this time, we ourselves were the path 
alongside which
The Old Ones found their way
