First Chapter

Each life is a story,
or a portion of one,
the text of which hides
a sub-text which is the real truth,
if only we could read it;
translated and decoded,
translated again and re-coded,
cut-up and reassembled,
never the same twice,
but always just as true,
generation after generation,
one long umbilical cord
connecting us each back
to the now-lost first chapter.
