Willy manages to get up .The shoes are shackled to one another with heavy chains. He wobbles but doesn't fall. He takes a deep breath and steadies himself. Still not in complete control. He takes a step forward. Can't take a long stride. The chains drag along the ground with heavy sound. Willy feels dizzy, like after a few drinks. He smiles and walks slowly. Clang! Clang! Clang!.. Better. People around stare at him but Willy looks straight ahead. Walk! Walk! Walk! He starts feeling lighter. Willy is released from the last of his emotional burdens. He is no more answerable to anyone nor he needs to prove anything to anyone. Great! Willy can finally do what he wants to do. But the shackles? He looks down. Shackles have disappeared. Willy is amused. Bad memories? Well, good luck to new life! He marches on......
