Only realizing the possible collapse of the system that we rely on, do we know to fear. Only discovering ourselves weak, do we learn to be humble. We need one another's support, or we won't last. That's why we have the opportunities to be together. Life truth is that beauty and cruelty blossom together. I simply want to reveal the essence of the cruelty when life is in full bloom and to whisper to you in the dark that the dawn will come eventually.
