Survivor, You Are

Survivor, You Are

It would just not be fair to compose you in a way,
Compromise on your density and lower your grace,
It’s true it was hard, such a year it was,
We lost so many loved ones, which made us all fall,
On the ground we were, weeping tears of turmoil,
Mind full of fear, so worried to die,
But in all that destruction, in all that pain,
I am glad we all survived, despite of that unexplainable insane,
Our hearts did bleed with an ache so surreal,
It felt like a nightmare and we prayed for it to be unreal,
I am proud of you as you are a survivor of war,
Fought so bravely even though you were left with scars,
You are nothing but a story to be told,
You are an inspiration that no one can withhold.
