I’m racking my head for possibilities,i can't’ just let my life be stolen away from me, i wish i could but i just can't.im not strong enough to do it all again.I've worked too hard,all those hours i spent working nights.All the shifts i covered.Everything i did just to make a slight bit more.My girlfriend warned me.I wish i listened.Im so stupid to not put my money in a bank.But i was stubborn.Instead i kept it in a box under my old crappy couch.And now a man has a gun to my head and he can take all my hard work away.I've worked so hard,and this man is fixing to just take it away.I wasted years of my life doing an honest living, working hard.And this man is just going to take it all in a few minutes.He didnt work for this,all he did was pick up a gun.I can't let him have it.I've got to try and think of something,anything.He's yelling.I've got to think harder but every scenario that comes to mind sounds completely insane.There's no way out of this.i can't think of anything. he's getting louder.His voice is getting deeper,he's losing his patience.but I can't let him have it .It can't happen,if he takes it i'll have to start over back at the bottom.It won't be long,he'll lose his patience and he’ll begin to squeeze his finger around the trigger and he’ll end it all,but i just can't let him take my work away.It's taken too long,too hard, to get, i've used so much of my life to get it.I can't let him take it away from me.I won't let him take it.I have to figure out a way to get out of this.I could punch him,but that would get me shot for sure.He's getting louder his grip around the gun is getting tighter .but i can't see any option.There's nothing i can do.Even if i do get rid of him he's got another friend hiding around the corner,trying to hide.Trying,but not succeding.So no matter what i do i'll lose my life.If they take my money,my lifes over.If i fight or try to do anything else i'll get shot dead.Im truly helpless.I have no options.It's all over,There's nothing i can do.I have no choices.They win.
