We Fill the Craters

We fill the craters left by the bombs
And once again we sing
And once again we sow
Because life never surrenders.

- anonymous Vietnamese poem

Quoted in The Country Under my Skin: A memoir of love and war,  by Nicaraguan poet Gioconda Belli

    Very inspiring lines indeed. Recently, I was blessed with the realisation that life is simply too precious to be squandered by human folly, and truth, goodness, beauty could never be effaced.
