Once bitten it is hard to go back.
Your teeth rot.
Your brain malfunctions.
You keep slipping more and more into reality.
You mind becomes a haze.
Some try to get out.
It's so hard.
Everyday they deteriorate more and more.
Like a rotting apple,
Soon there will be nothing left.
Some try to go back when first bitten.
Others give up and soon they all will.
Is there a way out?
Some have found it?
Will I?
Will you?

The author's comments:
This may be a confusing piece, but it's about being "bitten" by the world and conforming to it rather than being saved by God.
