When I hear the gunshot
I run
I run as fast as I can
I run
I run until I'm out of danger
Defeat scares me
Alerted I am
I run
I run with my eyes close
And I run
Visualizing my father walking out on me
His back turned
The coward didn't even say goodbye
Yet still
I'm running after him
The coward never came back
Not even to say hi
I'm left here all alone
To run from the danger of defeat
I opened my eyes
He's still not there
But at least I escaped the danger
I placed first
Crowd is cheering
Runners in other lanes walk away from me
I look in the stands
He's still not there
Even though I won
I'm still at a loss
