Before our births, void of choice, we became part of the story,
During our lives, with a choice, we can't escape the story,
After death, abandoned choice, the story continues to seep.
- Andrew Mansell

Dwindling Apostles

Once walked, now banished,
Battered by natures gifts,
In another lifetime vanished,
Forever from these cliffs.

Preach your dwindling name,
From this lens never swept,
Eternally captured in this frame,
Reference safely kept.

Andrew Mansell, October 2010.
