This piece represents hard times of loneliness and isolation. It is talking about being in a situation
where you are left with no options and you feel dammed if you do and dammed if you don’t. The
main character is the second from the left who is trapped between two monsters. The first group of
monsters is on the right, which represents the retreat and going back to failure and the other monster
is the one on the left (the one who is in front of the main character) .This monster, with one of his
hands, grabs the neck of the character trying to suffocate him and with the other hand is grabbing his
balls trying to kill the main characters courage. As a result he feels trapped and dammed if he does go
forward and dammed if he retreats. No options available. He is dammed if he does and dammed if he
There are times in life, hard times when you feel lonely. Nobody understands you, nobody knows what you’re going through. One of these times is when you feel trapped without options. When you can no longer go forward but you can’t also go back and change direction. You feel frozen and you stay steel. That’s when you wake up and you have no courage to get on your feet and fight because you can’t see anything good coming.
That’s when life scares the shit out of you and you can only see the darkest of the dark approaching. A big monster in front of you with one hand grabbing your neck, suffocating you, and with the other hand grabbing your balls, trying to suck out the last courage drops left inside you. And behind you even worst shit happens. The demons of failure party waiting for you.
And you are dammed if you do and dammed if you don’t.
