Survival Crowned

Flesh and bone
Our spark is strong
But strength in one breath,
Can be replaced by death.

Life needs to be earned.

Fragile the stone.
As a feather blown
When the hammer of war
Rocks us to center and core.

Will we never learn?

Humanity is drowned
When survival is crowned.
Life – a struggle to defend
Against family and friends

Living, our only concern.

Unable to care
Nothing to share
Existence ensures insanity
We’ve buried our humanity.

Hollow our spark burns.
