This man is fighting with his impatient horses
trying to delay his death by all means and his inevitable fall into
the precipice, Life is already going to end, and there is nothing he can do
to stop it, maybe he'll succeed and finish his song before falling

to make our time count? how would we enjoy life if we would be about to die
