Time Cotton

   Our ancestors were silenced from giving their legacy of knowledge. They were drowned by legislation and marked as slaves. They were humbled without understanding, forced to work and beaten.
   The generations since their freedom have had a responsibility that has been forgotten. More than a circuit was developed. We are locked in surrounded by it. Our progress slept in contentment as we are prodded and persecuted through our own thumbs and our own choice. We have enslaved ourselves with technology and have become near infrared.
   The next generation accepted our way and we left no question as to if this were the only way to live. They were not blamed for what we had done. However they made their way totally surrounded and still have unknown responsibility. What they will incur shall be much worse.
