When did you sell out to the idea that pain is what defines you? That there is no more to life than "this"?
Did you look one dark day and ito the mirror of your soul say..enough of this, This hope for a better day, this longing for cessation of chains.
Did you sell your dreams cheaply? Did your hopes die with a quiet whimper?
Are you still challenging life for a better cut?
teeth bared and claws sharpened, awaiting the next chance prove your humanity,
does the gravity of it all weigh your soul, or does it make for a stronger leaner fighter?
Where ever you are now, this time, this moment will not define who, what, or when you are.
This may be a rough time for you, but it will not last forever,
these days may be the worst, but they will pass on to the next.
It is up to you to define the essential "you"
Dont settle for merely existing, it is a rough path to tread and is the easy way. Dont take breathing and eating for existence.
You remember what is was to be young...dont you?
the endless possibilitys of you, the paralysing indecision for direction, well, now you can decide which way to go and what you want, if not physically, then intellectually.
Dont sit still and settle
Dont sell your self cheaply to this life
Fight for your life, dont give up
dont give in to pain, its is mearly a sensation of the body.
The mind is separate and distinct, apart from the mortal shell carrying us around. Free yourself from the chains of fear inspired by pain, study the nature of your pain, define the sensations...
once you know what you face, the fears of it diminish, and "you" can make a stand.
I dont think you have sold out.
I dont think you can.
