Courage

Forcibly dragged through the dirt

Handcuffed to the carriage of time,

try not to focus too much on your suffering.

For it is the scars that will make you humble

It is the blinding sun that will help you see

It is the dust of perishing memories you choke upon,

that will help you cry up to the heavens.

As the trail of blood behind you hardens,

the droplets will make their way back to the ocean

And find new souls to inhabit.
