Life burns you.
Beats you up and puts you down.
Just a series of harsh blows on your heart.
It breaks you apart.
There you lay, tears streaming down your face, empty, broken hearted, you’ve hurt so much that you can’t feel no more.
Numbness is your new friend. This feels nice after so long. No more pain. Gives a false sense of freedom.
Then there’s that final blow. Now all that’s left of you is a broken, hollow shell.
No will to live.
But you, you tough soul, you persist.
“No! This is not how my story will end.”
In that decision lies the secret of life.
You build yourself up in a new way,
Life surrenders to you. You’ve won.
“Enjoy your new existence.”
