From the Ahlberg Slopes

written by: J.Ahlberg



This is our family; these are our tribe
This is the soil that rooted our lives
The years are between us -
Each, all, and none
Every rise, every fall
Of the turning

This is our first home; these are our kind
This is the cradle our hands grasp tight
The tears cannot touch us -
We’re, always, as one
The beating, the drumming
Of our blood

This is our bondage; these are our ties
This is the summit united by sight
There’s nothing between us -
We’re, never, alone
From the top, of the berg
All the slopes
Are as one.
