The Road appears dusty,with no passerby to ask for help.
I am a lone traveller, glaring at the hot soil beneath me.
I see fumes of vapour rising from this same soil, far off.
What will happen now, where am I to go?
I feel stranded in an alien land, with only a road before me.
The entire landscape appears hazy now, like the fuming vapour from the soil.
My legs feel weak, and beads of sweat drench me in their rain.
Oh, what is this pain that I feel? It has gripped my entire being!
Am I not going to cover the distance and taste victory?
Victory!? Is it victory that I will find at the end of this road?
