Plunge beneath the surface
sink yourself deeper

Your lungs give ut
you need to breath

The current flexes its fingers
tighter around you

You **** in
You breathe out
The tide comes in
The life goes out
Emmett Apr 26
who’s to say that your own existence
is all that exists
and we’re making up this reality for your own sanity

Howdy doodie doo?
How are you?
What are you thinking?
What can I do?
Emmett Apr 26
except me.
Accept me.
Emmett Apr 20
I don’t know the words to say
Each time I open up my mind pushes me away
It’s there’s a lock down in my mind
My thoughts are left there always to reside

Your life happens to you
Your death happens to everyone else

You see, muscle, muscle is created by repeating lifting things that have been designed to weigh us down, so when your shoulder is feeling heavy, stand up straight, lift your chin, hell, call it exercise.

Remember that life is a gym membership with a really complicated cancellation policy.
Remember that you will survive.
Remember, things could be worse.
Remember, we have never ever given anything that we can’t handle.
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 are still here.
Remember, you are still here.

The human heart beats approximately 4000 times per hour, and each pulse, each throb, each palpitation is a trophy, engraved with the words, You Are Still Alive.
You are still alive.
Act like it.
I absolutely loved this Rudy Francisco poem so I had to pay it forward
