It’s almost time and it's still dark but soon that will change. The sun will cast its first rays of day as we go over the top on our last offensive. I don’t remember the exact number of times that I’ve gone over the top of our trench to storm the enemy’s nor do I remember how many I’ve killed. All of their faces have blurred into one mass of facial features in my mind. Hell, I don’t even remember the last time I bathed.

I took one last look around the trench that I called home for the last two years. Two long years at the front with no relief. I can’t believe that we’re still sane. Who knows, maybe we’re not? This war has dragged on to the point that I don’t really remember what a normal reality is.
