I generally try to keep a low profile.

I was never one to become fixated with my identity.

It is true, I may consist of leftover scraps,

crumbs of half-eaten civilisations long perished,

But make no mistake.

I am powerful. I can become anything I want,

and I can survive the harshest conditions.

So look out for me if you want to learn about your past.

because I befriend conflict and chaos

I thrive where the hammer meets the stone,

where the sea and earth settle their differences.

And I wait, patiently, until they have annihilated each other,

Because I am all that remains.

I am the destruction, and I am the hope.

The supernova, and the stardust.
