"We've come to accept life in a box because we've been told it's a normal life. No, it's a boring life." depicts my unspoken world.
Over the course of my life, I've encountered numerous crossroads where I was caught in between passion and practicality.

"The breath of seasons can’t deny its past, it’s still broken into parts. Won’t you believe I’m a damaged work of art."
"Like cold water, time’s slipping through my catch. But we’ll keep this act up, though I’m lost at sea."
"So we set off with the winds, with our backs leaned against the sun. Heavyhearted kind of sin. Broken cage, now it’s all undone."
