Experience it all—
the quiet lulls,
the booming crescendo.
Having your hopes crushed,
only to be rebuilt again
by your determined palms.
Meeting new faces, leaving new faces.
Abandoning the home in yourself,
returning to it later with enlightenment.
Looking in the mirror and hating what you see,
pitying the person that is yet to shed
the glaring insecurities,
finally standing with conviction.
Challenge your body
to endure the very hits
that lead it to empowerment.
