Don’t fret about the distance in your eye –
It’s the mirror that’s a lifetime away.
Don’t listen to the whispers in your head –
They don’t know why you did what you did…
This is your moment in the rain:
Spread your arms and soak in the wet,
Yearn for the sinking to the ground
To taste earth’s forgotten embrace!
Don’t fear the fire that they light –
I promise the wood will never burn.
Breathe in one last deep regret,
And offer yourself to the blade.
