For dying or loss
Cry till your tears dissolve your cross.

Within the shadows of our thinking

From the Boundless Life collection

Within the shadows of our thinking
Dwell glimpses of an ancient past;
Dark tales of vengeance and of terror

Is man, his child and care.

What can we learn from war?

From the Boundless Life collection

What can we learn from war?
Gazing at ancient graves;

That we should not be tyrants’ slaves.
