Still the air stiff is
After days of rain and dew.
Still my nostril itch
Fresh air isn't yet due.

Still dark this room
Though sunlight peek through the cracks.
Still I loop in gloom
After humming all the tracks.

Still trying to convince my shadow
That I'm somebody worth following.
Still walking this path narrow
After several metamorphosis.
