Since the moment I was told I was the reason behind the destruction and that I was also the only one who could prevent it from happening, I started finding it harder every minute to concentrate my thoughts; The Night of Thousand Tears began playing over and over again in front of my eye; I started finding errors and flaws and kept trying putting the pieces together; And all along I kept asking, ‘Who Am I’?!
I knew I came from Earth; I knew I had a family there and a mother; I knew my half heritage; But I didn’t know any further.
I knew nothing about the other half; I was never told; Every time I asked, my questions were ignored; And the answers I ever received were too cryptic and cold.
I had a lot of questions again; And answers I had to none; Once again I found myself lost with no place to which I belonged; Once again, I wanted to just leave everything behind and run.
I had known I didn’t belong to the place I came from; I had always doubted if I actually was as presented; I had questioned my existence every single day and each second; All through those thousands of lives until the day every time it ended.
I had lost myself to the stars; I had phased out in the belly of the Universe; I had seen many worlds be obliterated; I had seen every single atom and molecule from my body blow out and disperse.
I had known that I was the destroyer; Now, I was told I was meant to be the Saviour too; But no one ever told me where I came from; I was never told what I was or who.
I wanted to ask the Master every question I had; So I stood up, gathered my thoughts and went out; I found him sitting over the body of water, as if, completely unaffected by Gravity he was; As I went closer, I sensed him moving towards me as if he had already felt my questions and read my doubts.
He came up to me and asked if I really wanted to know; I answered, “It was the only logical thing to do”; And he thought for a moment as if to decide how to tell me the truth; And after a long pause, he answered, “Let’s begin with Who”.
