Who Am I?

I was Created at the End of the Renaissance,

Watched Pirates Rule the Oceans,

As Ivan, the Terrible Ruled Russia,

And witnessed the arrest of Galileo,

For Believing the Earth Revolved Around the Sun.

I AM HISTORY

History, despite its wrenching pain,

cannot be unlived,

but if faced with courage,

need not be lived again.
