and being obliged to change what fuels you-
to something so worldly
and letting go of what you truly are, and what your life should be.

just so you can continue living.
Until the pull of your heart gets taken away,
by what puts your feet on the mud,
and forced to believe,
that the world,
is what keeps you alive.
And from then on,
less and less of who you are,
but only for the world,
and can no longer even call
