When the hands of time
evict the smile from the apartment building of your face.
When you get punched in the esophagus by a fist full of life
Remember
The human heart beats approximately 4,000 times per hour
And each pulse,
each throb
each palpitation is a trophy
engraved with the words
“You are still alive”
…So act like it

-Excerpt from a piece by Rudy Francisco
