The Victory Parade
We cry. . .
You look at your soldiers and their weapons and are proud of them. . .
You think of them as those who protect you. . . And we cry. . .
We cry because we can’t imagine it in our world. . . We are not protected, but guarded. . . and only one – the Emperor.
Well, the overseers are also armed. . . but this is completely different. . .
We read your thoughts about the war. . . You call it the Great. . . Patriotic. . .
Now I can see your country being attacked on the Day of the Sacrifice.
There is always the biggest sacrifice on the Day of the summer solstice. . . the freaks are destroyed.
To rise up. . . so that there is no dirt. That’s why they destroy.
You’re dirt. . . russians. . . That’s what I thought at the time. . . I was glad that there would be less dirt. . . I helped those who were killing you. . . russians. . . and others. . . who are with you. . . .
I heard how happy those who killed you were. . . I was proud of their power.
Then something changed. . . on the Day of the winter solstice. . .
And I heard their fear of you. . . russians. . . .
You weren’t afraid to die. . . for those who you loved. . . for your women. . . children. . . parents. . .
And I . . . I stopped it. . .
I stopped everything. . . I stopped helping them. . . Those. . . with the swastika.
I thought you are not such freaks if you protect your women. . .
And then. . .
Then I just stopped the Program. . . The Program of your destruction. . .
And you rose up. . . Yourself. . .
I didn’t believe it was possible. . . that men could not be afraid to die. . .
they get up and run to their deaths. . . They are killed. . . many. . .
many of you are lying in the snow. . . fallen. . . still alive. . . and their last thought wasn’t fear. . .
I couldn’t believe this was happening. . . That you are not dirt. . .
That means I was helping the wrong ones. . . That means. . . and I closed my eyes. . . so that I no longer see what I have done. Me – Star. . .
That means Death will now decide what to do with you. . . with freaks. . . with Russians.
I think she liked you somehow. . . She has always listened with her heart. . .
Probably because you, like her, are fearless when you love.
