There are some of us, like you, who would ruin something beautiful—just to see if it will last

Just to see if it will fade when you throw it to the ground

 

There are some of us, like you, who would paint a lily black, just to see if it will shine

Who would tear a rose to shreds, just to see if it will grow

 

There are some of us, like you, who would study to comprehend what makes a picture feel alive

What makes a song to resonate within the heart, within the mind

 

There are some of us, like you, who would logically explain the reasons for humane emotions

Who would dissect a dreamer’s words for a rational, sound foundation

 

And there are some of us, like me, who would pity those like you

Who would take the beautiful—and change it to something plain
