Good-Bye by. Jay Kim Every time I step forward in anxiety, I hear my father’s voice faraway; Every time I can’t breath in misery, I look at the clouds floating away; Every time I realize the truth in fear, My heart slowly stops beating; Every time I get crazy in torture, I want to End everything. I step forward and jump off the cliff; Crying and falling on your needles.
