The Great Gamble

Formative in scarcity

and birth on lies and torture.

A stolen power

and a given life

and a lost future,

will the next generation

succeed?

Is it all and always

been the great

gamble.

Yes, it is true all

our efforts in our

ends of youth

are but a sorrowed

addicting

gamble.

Some Ominous Behold

Ah, yet

ominous behold,

ominous peak, and thrust

and strike!

And strike once more.

And at chance’s breath,

there is peace.

Not only peace,

but victory, for I hear the

rhythm of our drums.

Yes, not only peace 

but victory,

 truth, and honor,

not just words,

not just air,

not even found in war,

just real,

and simple, and at once

a truth.
