We Will Survive

We Will Survive.


With a little crack.

we came out of our dying shells

chipping to them for their

redolent act of rejection.

We could perceive evil around us.

but we will survive.


We have come

naive as a white sheet

to face the ratty deceitful Hawk

and lay it to rest.


The war gong jingles

and cock a doodle says our father.

The survivals will learn

from bitter experiences and stigmas.

but we must survive.


Blood will flow,

the earth will feed

but we shall become

as clean as a dove.

We must survive

and be cock a hoop about it.


We will survive

for we have been here

eating the shit around,

walking on the broken bottles.

we are made of rocks

and we will survive.


We stagger out of our home

where we had laid under our mother,

safe from the hawk.

We must survive.


We were cracked

to be strong

and survive.

All in all

we must survive

and we will.
