They recount stories of its power, wishing they still had access to its infinite knowledge. They were, unworthy, and never understood my vision.
And Mother, I call your name with blandness in my mouth. I gave you life when you hung so dearly by a thread. But what thanks did you gift me with, after I made you the mother to all my living creations? No gratitude at all, not a whisper of thanks -- even after ...
