Alive, but?

duty calls

conflicting with the heart

which is more important

what do we know?



does not knowing

burden the weary traveller

sadness presses down

but we are alive



beaten down

by the weight of fate

alone we stand

shoulder to shoulder



how cautious can we be?

stand up and be free

whilst continuously

coming up for air
