Run. faster. no end. never an end. just go.
Run. sprint. halfway? just begun?
Run. pain. hurt.
Run. faster. push. don’t stop. never stop. numb. mechanical.
Run. harder. hurry. pathetic. weak.
Run. nothing more. never more.
Run. faster . be strong. don’t die. it’s only release. only losers need release.

Run. push. faster. harder.
Run. mind gone. losing control.
Run. too fast! brakes? winners don’t need brakes.
Help. the end.
