Axioms For Life

How do we prove that 1 + 1 makes 2?

We've learned that axioms are laws
we shouldn't tamper with, because
the consequences might be serious:
a car might crash, a child might die,
a human soul be lost forever...

Axioms exist not only in arithmetic,
but also in religion, so when claiming
our right to freely think and speak,
we should be careful not to step
on other peoples' axioms of faith.

Memories And Dreams

How razor-sharp,

when, in one final strike,
it slashed the life-long bond
between the two of us, forever...

Not fast enough, alas, to kill
the ice-cold, stinging pain
