    "To be old... old school, old times, old as old can be. Tide in tide out. The waxing and waning of the moon. The sandbars of experience. Were you there when the sun was created? Were you there when gods walked upon the earth? Do the trees speak your name when you pass? Children all. Memory. Everlasting. As monuments crumble to sand to be forgotten. To carry on in the blood of the old ones yet still living."

    The scribbles trail off on the parchment. Falling to the ground, the paper drifts off into the wind.

    The fire slowly smoulders into ashes.

    And the sun rises once more.

    Young enough not to care too much
    About the way things used to be
    I'm young enough to remember the future
    The past has no claim on me

    I'm old enough not to care too much
    About what you think of me
    But I'm young enough to remember the future
    And the way things ought to be
