Who Started It All (To Odin)

So who
started it all
did you begin
with Ask and Embla
or did we shape you, Shape-Shifter ?
a mirror reflecting a mirror
anyone´s guess
but do we need you ? Or you us ?
To survive
love isn´t needed,
nor laughter, friendship nor gods
but to live
dearly we need them.
Did you call me, or did I
visit you uninvited ?
Do I follow, or do you
watch me from behind ?
It is no matter
as I bring you my sacrifice
I don´t know who started it all, but
let´s finish it
