I am the Storyteller and I am very old.
I spoke my truths when the mountains were young.
I began telling my tales before there was fire.
I made my way across the land, singing in rhymes and bringing news.
I learned to make pictures upon a page to tell my truth to the masses.
Then I learned how to use technology to send it across the world.
I am the Storyteller. Though the method I use to tell my tales may change, the need for my truths remains.
I am the Storyteller. Sometimes I live in luxury. Other times I am outcast.
At my worst, I chase luxury and fame.
At my best, I expose truth.
At my worst, I can elicit hatred and intolerance.
At my best, I can encourage love and understanding.
I am the Storyteller.
I will always be relevant.
I will always tell my truth, because I must.
It is my purpose and my purpose will always be needed.
