Survivor Strong

The lost sheep
and innocent victims
have their answers now
they have the joy we
now remember only
vaguely and wonder
if we’ll know again

We walk the tightrope daily
sometimes we fall
things we don’t want to do
things no one should have to do
we share the pain of strangers
not because we have been there
though sometimes we have
but because we can
imagine being there

We all go there eventually
it’s common humanity
and a feeling we wouldn’t wish
on anybody becomes
a feeling we strive not to cause
it’s common decency

And the angels we wish
were still people make us better
and stronger if against our wills
the only way to repay the debt
that is our memories
