To Batoul Al Skafi from Jack Peyton

The fog of the future will rise,

Like a butterfly from the cocoon,

The stench of blood,

Purified by the future,

The torn petals will grow again,

Grow to the beauty of life,

Fight through the darker days of autumn and winter,

For soon spring and summer will be here,

If you continue to love life,

Life will love you,

Life will show the path,

The path to the future.
