He found his life told in the histories of people he had never met and places he had never visited,
But a time came when he had read all that had been written,
And it was time that he set out to find the stories that were too old for words.
He dug up stories older than the land he traveled,
But the stories he uncovered had their roots burried deep beneath the surface,
Burried even deeper than the people who had lived them.
