The Forgotten

So many are forgotten in the passage to the Promised Land,

As if they have never lived.

So many stories are lost in the immeasurable silence,

As if they have never dreamed.

So many efforts are being made to touch the unknowable,

As if their stories would then endure.

But in the end all memories fade away,

As they get lost in the noise of time,

Like water molecules in ocean waves.
