One day, not long from now, I will start running.

When I start, I won't stop.

I will run, and run, and run.

I will run till my legs can run no further.

Even then, I will continue, for I will reach the Fifth Corner of the Earth.

When I get there, I will keep running, running away from the life I lead.

I will run from the life I could've lead.

I will run from the person I am.

I will run from the person I could be.

If I stop, I won't, for if I do, I will start again.

I hope no-one will miss me, for I won't be coming back.

I will run so far, not even Christopher Columbus will find me, if he were alive.

I will be in complete solitude.

So far from civilization.

In the day, I will run

In the night, I will run.

I can't stop.

I won't stop.

I will keep running.
