Survival


 



Many years have passed since we had that encounter
Separation of the mind and soul from your neglect
There was no goodness from your heart
Because we were equal mentally you were jealous
It pained you that some one was just as smart as you
Your fist was as quick as your temper
You didn't know that the physical bruises would heal
But the mental ones might not survive
The heart does not die from old age,
Death is from rage.
