"A diamond with a flaw is worth more than a pebble without imperfections"


Fighting.
Fighting for air.
Closing my eyes.
I'm a contestant.

Fighting for air.
Closing my eyes.
Feeling my heart.
Seeing the colours.

Changing colours.
Feeling my heartbeat.
Quickening heartbeat.
Finding my heartbeat.

Where is my heartbeat?
Keeping my heartbeat?
Losing my heartbeat.
Closing my eyes.

Opening my eyes.
Feeling my heart beat.
Fighting for air.
Contestant for life.
