We fell from the sky in dreams that died, we were pulled into the storm that broke us into desert. The only life we saw, was when we reached the wilderness by dusk, when the the fear of the unknown took us away. Carving our failures into stone, we never felt like we were ever enough. A million lies that tried to sweep us away, how many trials, and failures can we take?
