Climbing up from the pile of rock and rubble -
my body is again strong, and mind forgets the ancient trouble.
From the place of war, lies, and confusion -
I surrender fight for the sake of my master’s delusion.
The form I held then was battered and broken;
my soul trapped in fear, and verse unspoken.
I am no longer shattered, thieving for fragments to catch. My best work yet is composed with spirit to match.
As the old world slips and falls to pieces,
we’d do well to recall where our own peace is -
once this circle resembles nothing we knew,
we must pick up the remnants and build something new.
