By E.S. Wynn
Like the wind and rain, we run.
Shouts drown, die in the slapping reeds, edged grass. The sing-song cries of arrows, an orchestra of bowstrings that we cannot see, cannot escape.
Death comes sudden, life brought to a point, pinned to the darkness. Last breaths are labored, a counterpoint to the soft trod of running feet. Hands reach out in the falling night, reach for stars,
hope for something more.

Your spirit is your strongest asset. Don't let anyone convince you it doesn't exist.
