I don’t know where I’d be.”
I wrote those words 4 years ago,
Yet the truth matures with age.
I don’t know who’s appearance you have,
I don’t know what passions ignite your soul.

If only I would’ve been stupid,
It would’ve been unable to hide.
If therapists could’ve read my mind,
The diagnosis would’ve been easy.
Those 10 years of decay,
My symptoms were right there,
Finally reached the surface.
