TBT: Many Frustrations (2005)

I tried my best
Like all the rest
I went down the silk road
Found myself alone
Without a home
Dying
Thinking about love
Looking high above
And found myself alone

I tried my best
To pass the test
I went as far as I could
Found myself alone
Without hope
Trying
Thinking about dying
While I'm crying
And found myself alone

I tried my best
Like all the rest
I went to the end
Found myself alone
Without satisfaction
Sighing
Thinking about silence
Running out of patience
And found myself alone

Cringe Forest

I would see myself befriended
Laughing with friends
Always growing
Getting lost in the cringe forest
Happiness-
In our world-
Expanded

You would see yourself unintended
Bonding with friends
Always glowing
Going deeper into the cringe forest
Friendship-
In your world-
Strengthened

Dedicated to Mandy and Zoé
