I'm just a small part of this masterpiece created by the Master Himself. Reading, medicine, biology, modeling, and poetry are just a few interests to name.
"Macbeth" You see a promising future because of a strong work ethic, Just to have someone else take the credit, that would be tragic. Diamonds, pearls, medals and glory along with great recognition, Because a star like you deserves great, positive attention. Beautiful, strong, clever you are and you're not the only one who feels this way, But the main person who you feel should agree doesn't, making you feel betrayed. A man approaches you, handsome and charming, you two appear to have great chemistry, But his true intentions remain hidden beneath: anger, resentment, and envy. His seductive words begin to sink into your mind, How could they not? Both your feelings and perspectives seem to intertwine. Just like you, he sees the great potential you possess, Proceeds to go on a rampage with words on how your lover couldn't have chosen you out of the rest. Revenge, violence, seduction: just a few things he whispers in you ear, You take a step back and finally see the monster you've always feared. How could someone so beautiful, charming, and polite have the worst intentions? But you had that feeling all along but chose to ignore your intuition. To an extent, you still feel the urge to cause your lover harm, This urge immediately clashes with your values causing you a great alarm. Yes, he promised you love and happiness for an eternity, But he went down another path, maybe someday he'll have an epiphany. But until then you bid farewell to that handsome stranger because you know his ways lead to death, For this world is already corrupted and cruel enough and the last thing it needs is another Macbeth.
