I will not open myself up this way again

It was already late enough, and a wild night, and the road full of fallen branches and stones. 
But little by little, as you left their voices behind, the stars began to burn through the sheets of clouds, and there was a new voice which you slowly recognized as your own, 
that kept you company as you strode deeper and deeper into the world, 
determined to do the only thing you could do - determined to save the only life you could save.

    Og du, takk for den superfine kommentaren, og for at du anerkjenner mine forsøk på å omfamne livet!
