As for why, apply the same,

These veins adorned, abide

Life rips rhyme

Heart’s cry, sacrifice!

Yield faith to knees

Scrapped, bleeding

Remember, “This, too, shall pass”

Just keep breathing,

Skin heals.

Like you, this heart

Rise in grace, stand again!

Victorious post

Battles of place and thought

Be still, in —

The promise of tomorrow;

Sunlight, a smile, the buzzing bee

It’s the little things that keep.

Like a chilled glass, perspires sense

Fingers stir–these dreams tasted.

Laughter, sway

Strive further;

Name this chapter,

Ruin is beauty.
