have you ever been sincere?
for sincerity pampers perseverance
and perseverance breeds a joyful heart
a joyful heart speaks about love
have you ever been abused?
have you ever been rejected?
have you ever been ejected?
then take a second and look at the beauty of love.
have you ever thought about something all night?
something strange that you lose your sleep
chasing multiple shadows running pell-mell in your head
seeking to hold hands again with reality and love.
have you ever encountered true love?
have you ever held hands with her?
continue with this act of reality
as you come to reality in your heart with love.
do you still feel your heartbeat?
are you looking for something special in the desert?
cactus grows with thorns and share hatred to her world
see through your heart and embrace true love.
can you truly be sincere at heart?
can you truly express the love you share?
can you truly speak about your lover’s heart?
can you truly tell me about the unending care?
sincerity pampers perseverance
perseverance breeds a joyful heart
fall in love again in many ways
and live your wonderful life to the fullest always
