Comrades.
I'm running but so is time.
I will not fail,
I will not fall.

three seconds left
ten steps to go.
please stop counting.
I'm coming.

Next year I will not fail. I will not fall.
Next year it will be three steps.
ten seconds.

Comrades.
A marathon for warriors.
A marathon for me.
I just wanna say that,
I really tried hard, maybe even harder
To compose myself again
I did so many things to distract me from the pain
I thought that I am already okay
I didn't expect that you really have mastered ways on how to break me
Every move you make,
Every step you take
Every words you say
Just you're mere existence
*breaks me
It's the things we love most that destroy us

— The End —
