"Charm is deceitful,
Beauty is vain,"
But people are very shallow.

"Beauty will fade,
But true love lasts,"
Unless my true love looked through my plain face.

"It's what's on the inside
That really counts,"
But people rarely bother to look that far.

Don't waste time. Start procrastinating now.

I agree with this. Especially the one about "what's on the inside counts". I know it should be true, but a lot of people don't acknowledge that.

it's my way of being alone.
