Surviving Life


i will speak
and speak out
speak out loud
if need be
trying to reach you
attempting to
get through to you

don't let the liars
cheaters and despisers
bring you down
to their level
tell you how to feel
they are the losers
the total opposite
of you

your love
and compassion
makes you rise high
above the rest
afterall, we
are survivors
you and i knowing
full well
our faith will
see us through

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.

No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
