    and night, this morning the path inside my school was full of snails. I tried not to step on them, wondering which their fate would be when students came. At a certain point, I took a big one who was right in the middle of the path, and put it in the grass by the side. I...

    I see the world as an upside down sea.

    The deep dark abysses where unknown ghostly creatures live are on the surface. Very deep hidden underneath, invisible to our eyes, waves are moving all the time in the same direction, tides ebb and flow, there is a steady movement under the chaos

    I was a dreamer in a past life,

    I was a killer in another. I was a psychopathic madman, And an angry tyrant mother. I am a prisoner of time, I am a mass of contradictions. I am the writer of lies, And deceptive truthful fictions.
