Somewhere Right Now

August 2, 2012 § 24 Comments

Somewhere right now a woman is running on a mountain trail, the wind in her face, pushing herself, pressing on, alone and unwatched.

Somewhere right now a man sits on his bed, looking down at his lover still sleeping, seeking only to be close, knowing that whatever comes, he is all in.

Somewhere right now a child is walking into a school building, head up, shoulders back, striding purposefully into a cauldron of taunts and humiliations.

Strength is in the effort- not in the achievement.  Achievement is an external marker. Effort comes only from within.

That runner may never win a race.  That lover may have his heart shattered.  That child may come undone.  But each of them- in their moments of effort- is strength.  Embodied.
