I never lied when I said the city eats you alive.

If it’s not loud then it’s a dream.

He was a father I never knew, 

My words usually are crueler than true. 

I will never shine amongst the sky, 

I must dwell with the stars. 

Once I have it in my hands, 

It’s no longer beautiful. 

If I had the world right now, right there in my palms,

I wouldn’t have the wisdom of GOD to resist crushing it. 

It is only beautiful when I’m chasing it, 

When my heart beats fast as I run towards it, 

The moment before it is in my grasp, I realise I never wanted it.
