    I recognize the potential in us
    to continuously harmonize
    even in the tremor of pain.
    Nourished by a chaotic,
    brutal wisdom and love.
    But, caught by the proud,
    the preposterous sound unfolding
    and the echos distracting,

    It never seems fair
    From one side to the other.

    then all turns into a sad surprise...
