ok, i was not sure where to post this song since it is not really survivor poetry. it was actually written as part of a song cycle called 'sing for the cure', to raise awareness of breast cancer.

but, the lyrics are certainly pertinent, and inspiring for those of us who are surviving the spiritual cancer of the effects of SA.

may they always be a reminder that our path is one of hope:

groundless ground click to listen

we are stepping out in faith over groundless ground

i hear the call to use my voice
yes, i could turn away, but i have made the choice to fight
we must all unite
with courage like fire, fear is gone, i believe that we will win
deep in my heart my faith is strong
i want to try----we will more than try
we're gonna live
we're gonna fly!

stepping out in faith over groundless ground
we are stepping out in faith over groundless ground

every woman and every man
arm in arm, hand in hand
rising up to take a stand
we're walking to the promised land
leading the way at every turn
every single day standing firm
never gonna turn back, never look down
we're stepping out on groundless ground

we're stepping out in faith over groundless ground
with me, with you, there's nothing we can't do
celebrate the faith that we have found
step on out and let there be no doubt
reach down in your soul
faith will take control

stepping out in faith over groundless ground
we are stepping out in faith over groundless ground

marching ahead, moving along
lifting up the shouting song
getting closer, climbing high
we're taking up the battle cry
won't be denied, cannot fail
born to survive, born to prevail
keeping the faith onward bound
we're stepping out on groundless ground

I like this, and I have to admit that I'm fascinated by the concept of "groundless ground". I'm not sure what to do with that one!

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
(Woody Guthrie)

This is awesome! I can't help but think about a scene in "Raiders of the Ark the Holy Grail" where what's his Indiana Jones is stepping out onto what looks like empty air over about a minute and a half worth of free-fall when he is undergoing the "leap of faith" test.
