But how can one man

How can anyone

Hold fast to a dream

When the whole world

Keeps trying and trying

To tear down the walls

The ones that protect

The heart from dying

It’s not hubris nor is it easy

To live with the truth

It’s what we must do

To survive breathing

Fight out of spite

To keep on living

Screaming as a weapon

They call it crazy

Maybe it is – maybe it’s sane

If it’s all the same

I have another name

I call it

Self-preservation
