About the Piece

Decay is a natural phenomenon to all existences,
including human beings.
Beautiful cycle of nature.
Rotting of the fruits, the aging skin.
The uncountable years marked on natural objects.

Unexpected extinction.
The result of never ending human desire.
Their desires to live only for the moment.
The growing “resist” and “contradict”.

I shall go on to decline, as a natural object, and as a mere object.
