(Heavy panting)

Where am I?

Who am I?

What am I?

Why am I in a hurry?

Why are they all in a hurry?

My adrenaline is pumping.

I’m going as fast as I can.

What are we trying to escape from?

Whatever it is must be terrifying;

More than terrifying.

Some of us are getting lost.

Some are getting hurt.

No one is stopping to help anyone.

I guess I shouldn’t either.

Is that the right thing to do?

I don’t know but I have to keep going.

This is not an escape.

This is a race.

I don’t know what the prize is but I have to win it.

I just know it’s worth it.

I can see the prize.

It’s the most beautiful thing ever.

I’ve got to give it my all.

I’m ahead of everyone.

Got… to… keep… pushing…..!!!!

I won!!


Hundreds of millions of us in one race and I won.

It’s a miracle.

I’m a miracle.

It’s up to me now to show why I was chosen.

I have to represent all my fallen brothers and sisters who didn’t make the cut.

The best one won and I have to now show the world why.

Why I am the miracle that made it.

I am a miracle.

You are a miracle.

So are you.

Every living breathing one of you is a miracle just from the mere fact that you’re here.

You won your race.

You were conceived.

You were born.

This was not by accident.

You gave it your all and made it here.

Don’t get complacent or it will all be for nothing.

Keep going.

Keep adding momentum.

Keep being a winner.

Go out there and live your best life.
