Survival 

With each blow life inflicts upon my soul

My spirit grows

Awaiting the next

For woe and I have lived together

In the same lone home. 

With each blow life inflicts upon my heart

I lie down like a tired child

And weep the instability of life

My understanding evolves

And wonders on the shores of life.

With each blow life inflicts upon my brothers

I soak eternal pain

Like sands on the seashore

Soak the ocean waves

For my heart and theirs are merged

Like different shadows into one.
