Endless are these frozen winds upon my flesh;
Knife-bearing, they slash and tear away
My courage, warmth, and will to fight back
Until hatred is all that remains of my heart.

Endless is the hate this season taught me.
Endless too is my fear.
Endless are the taunting nightmares
Bearing warm memories into this cold Hell I awake.
I always awake . . .

At the end of suffering even joy may follow.

To be torn asunder is to know wholeness.
To know how to suffer is to know exultant joy.

Even in this Hell the beauty is endless
And Heaven can be seen within.
This beauty is endless.
Endless . . .
