I am not promising

I will not change

I am not promising

I will not have different moods

I am not promising

I will not hurt your feelings

I am not promising

I will not be erratic

I am not promising

I will always be brave

I am not promising

My faults will not show

I am only promising

That I will I love you forever

Creative Hell-Raising Pledge — May My Work Be So Damn Real. | Rebelle Society

“May my work be so damn real that they cannot un-see it;

So sense-numbingly beautiful that they cannot unfeel it;

So achingly naked that they’ll never, no matter how they try, be able to return to the world unchanged.
