Music: Ben Howard - Black Flies, - Promise, - Diamonds


To the functional, those that know how to organize their days
and follow through with their plans
those who aren't struggling to rise each day
nor are trapped in their mind

To them
she is a babbling mess
contained to herself, her apartment
and the words she utters

To the emotional, those that yearn to be held
and to be loved for what is in their heart
without betrayal and deception
without manipulation
just honestly

To them
she is a healing ocean of water
a dear friend always to be called upon
the warmest and safest hugs

To the intellectuals, those that build up models and theories on everything
and absolutely nothing
that see everything in categories
and seemed to have figured life out to the smallest detail
but forced to hide their true face

To them, she is a welcome contribution, not life-changing
but a nudge here and there
someone to be taught

Not realizing that she is neither like them
nor unlike them

they don't see their many-sided faces
of practical strength
thoughts and ideas
and love
