One mark of absent mindedness

The harshness of loathing skin and bone

Losses are lesser, nurture this burden

And disposal is a waste of it all.

An absent influence that brings relief,

Keep your secrecy it's never meant anything to me.

Unfolding insincerity, talent lies in deceit,

The craft of cheating.

Make believe misfortune to keep yourself down

Undaunted when the real disaster hits.

Disconnect, keeping distance,

At the last moment come to lose what you've found.

The faintest spark attempting to impart,

Coughed up promises churned out to embrace faith, not one was ever

There's no quality like arrogance, there's no defense when falling flat is
Risking fortune.

These things are sent to test us. The practice of misleading, every measure

The strains of undue weight

First error lies elsewhere

Retreat, march on! Repairing the damage that has been done.

Crushed, move on! Finding comfort in these lessons.
