today i'm like a crumbling wall that still stands. when it rains, i don't leak. that's the only power i have left. my heart is buried in the ground beneath me. i maintain. i will maintain. i imitate a mountain. pour your misery onto me and it all runs off. i keep nothing of it, but i hold nothing either.
