The Algorithm – Lines 1422 to 1437

What should I do for acceptance? I could have

always been this. How else to explain my hand

In the fire I am in? How will you love me,

You who are a hand I love?

In what part of my life could I say? Father

Of my dreams says I am in love


With my father in a new green house

On a farm in an environment with perfect blue air

With you: you are the mind, the spring, the tree,

The fire, the wind. you are the one that I loved

The most, because you never changed. So I can see

That you are not the world’s diversity,

But did not love. You are the one that I

Engaged to use. And in my deep heart’s resilience,

You do not love me. What you do

Is fall on me.
