By Melania Daniel
Bruised and broken is learning
What life is really about;
All this longing come to nought,
All this aching discomfort
Ends in unsated yearning
Of fine youth turned stale and stout;
They whom misfortune has sought,
They moored in a stormy port
To know the grace of earning
In voices that softly shout;
The way life’s victories are fought,
The racers slowed to a trot.
