All But the Strongest

Snow obliterates all but the strongest,

those who can stand up to pressure,

shed icy grip

from a mind refined by practice.

These have seen it all,

and know the drill –

never bow to bullies,

never compromise  principles,

never ditch doctrine

when the world goes white.

All but the strongest will collide

with reality

and lose.
