Footstep upon footstep pushes the horizon further

A heavy shadow drags anchor-like in his wake

Each day runs through dawn and dusk

And the man's resolve weakens with rust

 

Caught in his ears he hears futility murmur

Life is killing him with each breath he takes

While death waits to greet him as a friend

Giving up now means defeat before the end
