Crush a soul and all you have

Are tears

And cries too deep for crying

Emptiness expanded

Choking pain


Crush a dream and all you have

Are hopes and wishes

And the conviction that conditions

Can be changed


But crush a life and all you have

Worth having

Are the dreams and the soul who spun them

Gossamer silk in spiderwebs

Unfurled in the wind

Catching dew and waterdrops

And turning them to liquid fire
