We Will Survive

Take away the sun above
And burn the air we breathe.
Take away the moon and stars
And everything believed.

.

Take away the green of life—
The blue-green seas below.
And take the glow that lives in them
And everything unknown.

.

Take the candle. Take the verse.
Take art. And take the artist’s words.
Take each thing— its form, its name.
Take everything. What’s left but blame?

.

One thing’s for sure— We will survive
We have gone on and left this song behind.
