Voices Of The Past
Author: Andrew James Ball

I


Great spirits of the past
Kings of old
Lords of wisdom
Hear our prayers on this holy night
Take form and show us the light.

Remind us of our ancient heritage
Which was forgotten over the millennia.

Teach us of our past
Show us our future
So we may keep the old ways alive
As we give thanks to you
For all you did in life
And the sacrifices you made
That made our lives what they are today.

We ask that you will give us knowledge of the past
So you’ll not be forgotten
We ask this in the name of the Father, Mother, and the Holy Spirit
Amen.


II


Voices are in the air
Traveling on the cool night wind
Speaking of the past
And telling of forthcoming events.

They speak of love
Full of passion and desire
Telling of someone that you did not trust
Who will not be able to contain their lust.

You think they might be dangerous
But they’re not
They only love you
And wish to be loved back
So say the great voices of the past.


III


Listen to the voices ringing in your ears
They are sharing their ancient wisdom with you
Which is as old as time
And as vast and complex as space.

For these spirits that have past
Wish to help you solve the problem
That has blocked your path.

This enigma will be answered
If this new information
That was handed to you
By the voices of the past
Are simply used in your quest for truth.


IV


Voices of the dead call to us
To foretell of their arrival
From the great beyond.

We needn’t be scared
For they have come to help us
In our quest for enlightenment.

With their help
All past and present knowledge will be known
And a better tomorrow shall be born.

If the darkness of this world should retreat
Ignorance will deplete
And peace will reign.

The hour grows near
Then they will appear.
