ヒドンライス (Hidden Lies)

Living life to the fullest is hard, and it is even harder when you have no reason to live at all. If your reason for living is pulled away from you, you start to lose hope. Eventually, even the thought that things will get better vanishes. This despair roots itself deep into your mind, taking over whatever positivity there is and dragging it into the depths of the abyss.

My future would be determined by this one audition.Bookmark here

The only thing I could remember was waking up in a hospital and realizing the end of my dream.
