we picked out a seedling from hundreds alike.
until he noticed one, unlike the rest.
"this one has character, just like you" he said "different is best".
so we took it home and watered it with love.
as time went on, he got busy... forgetful and thoughtless.
he deserted us both, found things better to do.
nothing can survive from a one-sided love,
and so we both learned the unholy truth, just being different simply isn't enough.
