Immortality Through Consequence.

If history is in our hands,
it will surely crumble
and mutate into myth,
but there are signs
of its presence everywhere.

Everything, everyone,
mere products of past action.
All earn immortality
through their consequence.

Peer beneath, find the past,
for the before hides inside the now.
Every moment is a cosmic graveyard.
Time is a mountain you climb
with corpses as footholds.

Today is a predictable
extrapolation of yesterday.
Tomorrow, of today.

Break the bark with the blade.
Just swing back, slicing along
the rings of the tree,
truth hiding within after all.

Just reaching for understanding.
Building up strength to bear
the weight of yesterday.
