Win or Die Trying

When do the waves stop crashing?
When do burdens' ceaseless poundings cease?
The beaten man is moaning and thrashing -
still fighting, such futility!, against the beast.

But, perhaps there can be found relief.
One day, peace shall surely arrive.
Surely, there is more to this thing than grief!
One day, he hopes to see it, if he's still alive.
