If we never have the knowledge of what bad could possibly come out of a thing... hopefully we would never be afraid.. People have always sought for antidote for fear.. and it …
For years under the sepal shields We are sweetened and nurtured for the world to see
From all the kisses of seasons and winds We bloom for the forces to ravage us free
Born alone and destined to die alone We spend our life recklessly and bemoan!
