I only tried to make this place a better place to be.
I meant to change the things that make you hurt and to stop the pain inside of you.
And do not mistake my foolishness for courage, or my weakness for valiant honor.
No, I simply tried to bring a bit of happiness to you, and tried to hide my faults and lack of wisdom too.
I guarded things inside of me that blow about like leaves caught in an autumn’s wind.
I could clearly see the hurt that dwells so deep inside of you, that hurt you hide so well from others – or at least you think you do.
