And This Is The Way

To love
To live
To death
To give in
To surrender
To conquer
To be humiliated
To survive
To be the survivor
To let the evil have its way
To bring the evil its ending day
To save each other
To save ourselves
To be alone
To be of life
To be anything you want
To be everything
To be nothing
Not to care
Not to love
Not to live
Not to share
Not to be.
This is the way to leave…
