Alive

Muscle is created by repeatedly lifting things that have been designed to weigh us down. So when your shoulders feel heavy, stand up straight and lift your chin-call it exercise. When the world crumbles around you, you have to look at the wreckage and then build a new one out of all the pieces that you are still here. Remember, you are still here.

The human heart beats approximately four thousand times per hour. Each pulse, each throb, each palpitation is a trophy engraved with the words , you are still alive.

You are still alive. Act like it.

  1. Kinda funny for a poem I used an analogy ‘carrying a weight on your shoulders will only make you stronger’ (not an exact quote.)
