  • No more doing, just to do.
    No more pretending, just because it's too hard to bend.
    To become natural, mendable, lovable, and less artificial.

    Black walls come up in front of his eyes,
    Don't push too hard, he's not letting you in.
    Purity, like a diamond, as you look into her eyes.
    Don't let it get foggy or cracked.

    Be sure of this: everything changes.
    To be artificial: nothing changes, just like plastic.
    Strive for the natural essence, one that could fade or fall away.
    Yet, the beauty is undeniable.
