Life is hard


What should you do when people all disapprove of your decision? How can you earn the trust from them when people don't believe in you? I'd say-- the ideal path would not be confortable one, the easy road would not be an interesting one. I chose the bumpy and crowded street because I know the right direction, and please, give me a chance to prove it.

The Most Serene Republic-Heavens To Purgatory
Thao with the Get Down Stay Down-Body
MIKA NAKASHIMA-流れ星
