Ancestors

WHAT WERE the dangers that they faced,
 these many ancestors of ours
 we know so little, now, about?

DID THEY brush up against death's blade
 but somehow live another day,
 a tale that formed their waking minds

BUT NOW forgotten, lives at sea,
 like species yet unknown or named
 because of all the fathoms deep between?
