DEATH CHANT

by Modar Neznanich

 

From darkness we are born to light;

In light we bear joy and sorrow;

To which we bear memories.

May the gods above be kind to man,

For they are orphans of time.

And, O gods, be gentle to me,

For I am an infant again;

Newborn into darkness.

For I am the past,

And also the future.

For while I am life,

I must also be death.
