Hush Now

Each night on Earth is full of pain.
Hush now,  heart.
These hard souls, hard shields
reflect  light from the home of the stars.

Your lament makes you weaker.
Hush now, heart.
Mere silence heals, silence cures,
intactly pure and innocently true.

Seek the hot life of torment!
Hush now, heart.
No-one is made strong through wound and
Light just as steel is heaven's stronghold.
