A life is a testament hard earned
A story inked and burned
Into clean skin

A life is filled with scars
Some too large to hide
Most not seen live deep inside

Where cells grow
Our DNA knows
The deep stress of survival

So many terrible Winters
No fire to burn
No food to churn

Our mind’s drift
Far across the snowy fields
Where no one can know

If the sun will ever come out
Hunting the land for deer
Nothing seen or feared

Bodies are buried
Prayers are said
As we continue on ahead
