Fools who run in, burn out
like stars and life and fires and cars
eventually the last light snuffs
the last thread breaks
the last breath breathed
but even though nothing truly lasts
things always begin anew.
So break, dear friend and mend again
become strong and stand alone
be proof of strength and honor and glory
of love and patience and understanding
proof that all things become new.
Be wary friend, of all that glue
and be patient as you wait
and always remember, my dear friend
slow and steady wins the race
