Easy as it seems, to stay alive,  to stay vigil & to look the night in the eye.
It never was,
easy to taste the smell of grass,
to feel that touch of buds of wheat.
& when speaking, to tell of life, & tell of life only.
& breathe the breeze in a Sunny day heat.
It never was,
easy to whisper to your eyes,
the hope I harness all day long
Into a newly born song.
Into a Life; lived by both of us, told by ourselves into ourselves.

Easy as it seems, to laugh at fortunes & at fate. To fight the surging heaving hate.
It never was,
easy to laugh nor to fight,
when your days are one long night.
Nor is it easy to surrender
all the garish strips of light
— all the colors of your soul.
Remember that when you surrender that you can, in times like these,
to be at all — to live at all; is vital,
as abundant as all seas.
You are here, & that is why you are a Hero, Today.
You are here, & that is why happy, you shall stay.
