A Nerve

Take time to build
As it will take time to destroy
Take time to mediate
As it will take time to arbitrate

It never stays the same
But sure it was before it came
Absorb with the pain
And live to tell the story of the slain

It goes away
Yes it drills away
And life is live again
As it will bring more gains
