Favorite Quote:
"The victor writes the story."


Hail to the victors,
Hail to the survivors.
Appreciate the memories,
remember the forgotten.

Know what you have won.
Forget what could have been lost.
Ask the world to
remember the others
locked in stalemate.

Sing in the shower,
breathe another hour:
remember the broken.
remember the sick.

Children will fall,
ask the world
to honor their wishes.
Hail the victors.
Dignity in supremacy.

Never forget your luck
and hail the helpers.
but sublimination
desecration of memory.
Remember the broken.
Remember the sick.

If you should fall,
ask of the world
to remember the broken.
Remember the sick.


The author's comments:
I got the idea for this piece from a billboard that showed a lukemia survivor, saying "Hail the Victor". I want for people to remember that work is never done, and that there are always more people that need help.
