169/365: Like Swine to the Sea

Say it because it is obvious.
Do it because, of course, there is no other way for you.
Write it down, paint it,
tap it into code that builds the framework that contains it.
Make it.
Say it because it is obvious.
Let them hate you for it,
because you don't have to live in their ugly skin.
It is like driving demon swine into the sea.
All the loud and terrifying noise doesn't matter anymore
once they've gone over the cliff.*
