How can I escape this fatal trap,
And simultaneously save my friends?
I see no instructions, signs, or map
So how do I make amends?

Smashing all the clocks will do no good
I can't even try to play along
All of my attempts will burn like wood
For I know my choices are wrong

Ticking away like silent screams
What can I do with these shattered dreams?
Even if I had told them so
They'd smile like I'd never know

How long can I run away
From everyone else's fears?
The truth I could never say
They'd spill, for me, quiet tears

One has lost his sight and all his strength
One has come undone and loudly wept
These nights have seemed to stretch in length
This secret should always be kept

Dropping away like poisoned flies
They all fall right before my eyes
Still they are strong, they will pull through
As for me, there's nothing to do

So how do I sacrifice,
Myself without being missed?
It's just like the luck of dice
That fall from a poor man's fist


The author's comments:
POOR ITALY! I love Hetalia but HetaOni almost made me cry. I decided to step into Italy's shoes and write this little poem. I immediately stepped out of them. SO SAD.
If you know of "Fullmetal Alchemist" there's a song called "Brothers". This poem can be sung to that tune. DOUBLE SADNESS. MY FEELS.

I know! :( I wish the others had listened to him! But, honestly, I wouldn't have taken him seriously either. I mean, come on...it IS Italy after all! *white flag*

Man, I told one of my friends to read this and my traffic arts teacher (they know about hetalia) and their reactions were to tear up and say either "oh my god poor Italy" or "I want to hug Italy now".
