Ancient Man

I have listened to voices speak profound thoughts and theories word upon word about ancient man
I have looked at his artifacts
and seen his temples
yet never spoke his language.

Though books proliferate
and edifices stand to proclaim his presence
not one unturned stone nor uncovered word
could recreate his being
and each theory moves us one step further from the past.

Look no further than you are
for you are he and he is you
his language is dead
but his spirit lives.
