“The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." I guess that means we're just products of whoever made us and we don't have much control. The thing is, when people use that phrase, they ignore the most critical part: the falling. Within the logic of that saying, the apple falls every single time. Not falling isn't an option. So, if the apple has to fall, the most important question in my mind is what happens to it upon hitting the ground? Does it touch down with barely a scratch? Or does it smash on impact? Two vastly different fates. When you think about it, who cares about its proximity to the tree or what type of tree spawned it? What really makes all the difference, then, is how we land.”
― Val Emmich, Dear Evan Hansen

As you strike

I shall rise

Bringing you

a dark demise

for those who lie

who break their vows

shall forever burn

in sins so foul

For I have made

some small mistakes

made it through

the minor breaks

and I stand

up here still

to fight you

again until

the end of my

lovliest days

I will rise

and end your Raize
