The Good Years

The devour of courage.
The soul enticed,
a lifelong endeavor of greatness.

How to conquer fear, to conquer sorrows.
Life can be difficult.
Life is never a perfection.

Hands can hold weapons.
Feet can walk away from the door of hell.
Bodies can win a war.

In exhaustion.
We regain our strength.
We don’t hallucinate in our fevers.

Our seas have underground beauty.
True stories are told.
To be the best is better than the rest.
