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"
