Self Reproof
You'll always be the same, while I get old and grumpy.
I'm already old and grumpy.

A shady day is depressing enough, 
without shady thoughts.  

How can there be a man who doesn't even move his fingers?
You had everything. You had a piano. 

You had a house and a friend. 
You had a mouth that loved food. 

Thank you for being alive.
I'm crying because I'm so happy

is a lie.
For the sun to own a shadow

it must have a sister who is brighter and fiercer. 
I have a sister in my heart, a dark and fiery girl.
