Same Spaces

Dairies are meaningless
when you have motion
ancestors sit in the past
like so many old covers on a shelf
soundwaves and photons flick into reality
putting the past to bed
and being content with oneself

Stories are passed down through ages
names can be forgotten
and so can the faces
just think your ancestors
occupied the same spaces
they will have fought wars
and have had fun at the races

They say the past still exists
at the same time as the present
and may be those who see ghosts
are seeing apparitions in time
all we have are tales
and black and white photos
is life not becoming just an archive.
