About the unwillingly joined human race

 

I am ,was ,will be running- that's what I think when I don't want to run anymore. I don't think that I am running on the same spot, but running all over the place trying to catch my destiny . I found happiness and I took care of it because the old ones told me that they were very rare . But they never last longer than I needed them to be. But hatred was really cheap and I noticed them a lot around myself. I collected some and planted them in my garden. They gave me the flowers of grudge, which were fresh in my mind longer than I thought they would be. Someone, maybe something gave me motivation, but I think I left it somewhere down the road or maybe I lost it .But they kept pushing me .I tried to ran along the other runners, but I always ran alone. As a matter of fact, they all did. I have tried to stop but time was going on with its flow . Sometimes it hurt . For me, time was an enemy ,an invulnerable one .I could never get something when I wanted because of it.I wanted to run backwards for the path I have ran was less darker than the path on which I am running right now . But it was never possible because of it. I want a break, a break from this race ,maybe I want a break from my own life, just because I don't want to survive it ,not like this ,maybe I just want to live it . But the old ones wanted the same .l knew that they didn't want it either when I saw their bloody legs .But they were terrified about the finishing like they knew what was at the end and they told me so. After that they disappeared under the soil. But then everyone else was still running, I was too. Running for something, running on a small distance from death called life. My legs will burst into little pieces of flesh and blood in any moment now , again; there is no escape from this wild race .
