    Breath after breath, pushing out
    My body struggles to catch up
    Starting is always so hard
    My body stiff, my mind wild
    It feels like they are running
    in different directions
    Struggle, pain
    Why don't I just stop?
    Why endure it?
    Because it is life!
    From joy to euphoria to suffering
    The finish line comes
    and the journey is always worth it
    In the end all is workable,
    a deeper experience
    good and bad
    my soul more vulnerable
    life magnified
