    Entry no.1: "These Broken Little Pieces" by riki

    These broken little pieces of me
    are scattered on the floor.

    They've been shattered
    due to life's unexpected
    challenges, hardships,
    and more.

    they're salvageable.

    I try to put them back
    together again,
    but the pieces just don't
    fit perfectly

    like they used to do

    But I fix them
    the best I can,
    and they look
    just about right

    though imperfect,
    with its cracks and fissures.

    it still looks like me
    only different now.
    Stronger and more resilience.

    For these broken little pieces
    is what makes me, me.

    Entry no.2: "Party" by TotalEcon

    Five Hundred Wagons
    A Harsh Winter Blows Down Pass
    Only Two Survive

    Entry no.3: "Floating World" by Shobu_Yoruichi

    Put away your hope,
    Put away your reason,
    Put away your purpose

    This is the floating world,
    Ether keep us within the globe,
    Gravity? Does your mind works?
    Because Newton tried to survive with that thought.

    Did you remove all your stuff?
    Great! Because now you will be able to,
    To what you ask? To live! Now be different,
    Be different than all those others that have no purpose to live.

    Entry no.4: "Resilience" by Lady pompom

    It isn’t a game
    There’s no winning or losing,
    You just survive.

    Through all your fears,
    Through all your hardships,
    Through everything that confronts you and your truth.

    Then, you stand,
    Victoriously, but not proudly,
    Because it’s just another day
    And there’s more to come.

    Entry no.5: "Survival is a Battlefield" by Brandish

    Enter a war of attrition
    Make ground for yourself
    Make ground for others
    Gain intelligence, lest you fall behind.

    Pay the toll of victory
    Pledge decades for shelter
    Refill the ice box to sustain the winter
    Sustain the cycle

    You won’t pick the time
    Nor the comrades by your side
    You will ceasefire nonetheless
    Many more will take your place

    Entry no.6: "Song of Survival" by Organizized

    Sing to me softly once more about Death
    For music breathes life into all
    When Death comes to life in your voice
    I will crawl before him, I will fall
    to my knees and beseech him
    "just one more song"

    And you'll sing to me softly once more about Life
    A song to outlive all the rest
    And Death he will patiently wait,
    unprotesting he’ll stand, undistressed
    To a song of survival
    ‘fore he takes me along

    Entry no.7: "Learning to swim" by Marmalade Sky

    She's not able to do it anymore
    A princess needs someone
    Someone to win her war
    A prince, brave and daring
    She is lonely, an eyesore

    If he was there, would that end the pain?
    Far away, in a magical land
    She's drowning, people surrounding her
    Yet no one reaching out a hand
    The world, mean and cruel
    Strenght resources unmanned

    The expected road, a painful strain
    The princess spots a star
    Light reaching the earth
    A new path emerged from afar
    Her own path, value unkown

    Step by step, into the hurricane

    Entry no.8: "Nobody Knows" by WithYouInSpirit

    "No one can tell me,
    nobody knows,
    Where the wind comes from,
    where the wind goes

    It's flying from somewhere,
    as fast as it can
    I could not keep up with it,
    not if I ran

    But if I stopped holding,
    my oars oh so tight,
    I would surge with the waves,
    for a day and a night

    The world wished to end me,
    but I stood up to fight
    Before I could end it all,
    I saw that bright light

    And so did I follow,
    wherever it blew,
    I should know that the wind
    Had been going there too

    So then I could tell that light
    Where the wind goes...
    But where the wind comes from
    Nobody knows"
