You may feel like the rotating of
the earth is shaking you off faster than
you can hold on; but remember no matter
how fast it goes, gravity is stronger.
You will forget the joy and your brain
will sometimes spin with lack of dopamine,
but sadness is just a brain missing chemicals
that happiness reminds it to make, and you are stronger.
You may feel like this darkness is eternal
and so long as the earth spins around the sun
the sunrise will always come eventually
and hope for tomorrow is always stronger.
You and I and all the people you love
will one day fade and die and oblivion is inevitable,
but the energy in your molecules will not dissipate,
it will transfer on to beautiful things; your memory is stronger.
Your atoms are 99.999% empty space
and some days you will feel the void
in your very being, slipping; but the forces
holding all of this nothingness together are stronger.
Your heart is a muscle and muscles do not break;
they only tear, and when muscles
feel pain stirring them from their quiet rest,
they can only ever grow back stronger.
You are made of stardust, yes
but you are also made of carbon
and carbon under pressure turns
into diamond; infinitely stronger.
And maybe sometimes the gravity
holding your feet onto this earth may
feel like it is breaking but floating
has never felt so much like soaring.
And you are stronger.
