Pain trains an undisciplined mind.
I will end yours if you end mine.

Little feet, little feet
are playing Hopscotch among the landmines.

Hope has worked miracles before.
If yours didn't, how can mine?

I could have learned to welcome night,
If only you had been mine.

How dare you put words in God's mouth,
Shail? Why not. He put ashes in mine.
