Does the heart justify its body?
When bodily pain covers the feelings underneath
The needle, the knife, and the love they don’t know
Is it ok if this justification only comes in sleep?
Do people justify society?
When they pay just to be the same
When society dominates people
Is their uniqueness covered shame?
Will you justify my love?
If I give you my heart and lend you my hand
Will you be there forevermore
When I grow old and can barely stand?
Does the end justify the beginning?
And the middle – bad as it may be
Is the result worth its actions
Filled with sadness or filled with glee?
