Different Images

Rating: 4.5

IF YOU RUN AWAY TO THE FRONT, YOU WON'T GET ANYTHING. IF YOU RUN AWAY TO THE REAR, YOU WON'T GET ANYTHING. IF YOU RUN AWAY TO THE RIGHT, YOU WON'T GET ANYTHING. IF YOU RUN AWAY TO THE LEFT, YOU WON'T GET ANYTHING. IF RUN AWAY UPWARD, YOU WON'T GET ANYTHING. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO FLY FOR YOU DON'T HAVE WINGS. EVEN IF YOU HAVE WINGS, YOUR WINGS ARE BROKEN. YOU ARE WINGLESS. YOU ARE NOT A BIRD. YOU ARE NOT A DOVE. YOU ARE LIKE A STATUE WITHOUT WINGS. BROKEN WINGS EVERYWHERE. YOU ARE NAILED ON A WALL. YOU DON'T HAVE ANY PATHS IN FRONT OF YOU OR BEHIND YOU. ALL TUNNELS ARE DARK AND EMPTY. WALKING IS IMPOSSIBLE. ALL PATHWAYS GOT CLOSED. PILES OF STONES GOT HIGHER AND HIGHER UNTIL THEY ARE MOUNTAINS. NO RAIN TO WATER THE THIRSTY LAND! BEHIND THE WALLS A LOT OF EMPTY WELLS. AND BETWEEN THE STONES AND THE DUST A THOUSAND TALES. THE LAND'S FACE GOT PALE LIKE A DUSTY MIRROR THAT DOES NOT REFLECT ANY OBJECTS CLEARLY. EVERYTHING AROUND THE PLACE GOT FROZEN WITHOUT SNOW IN A SUMMERTIME. EVERYTHING AND EVEN LUTES AND ALL MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS TURNED OUT OF ORDER NO MUSIC, NO SONGS, AND NO TALES. ONLY DIFFERENT IMAGES, BUT NO SEASONS TO ARRANGE THEM.
