Oneself As my heart grows stranger
My passion for love hurts
even more
Striving to fulfill my fantasies
Goes along with the territory
To differ against oneself is
Not as often as I like to do
But to differ strongly is what
Makes life interesting
My reality starts with the
Birth of myself as a person
To do what's right or wrong challenges me
Thinking to get rid of all the
Pain I have caused
I suffer as much as normal people would
Not to live alone in my own shadow
But to stand side by side as my oneself.
