One More Step

“Because as long as I have air in my lungs,
there is always a way to keep going.”

Sometimes I think I cannot take another step. That I’ve used every last bit of energy I could muster. Depleted all the emotion that kept pushing me and driving me to keep going. But no matter how bleak the circumstances, or how utterly hopeless my world seems, I always find a way to claw my way up from the cold, muddy ground and take another step. Because as long as I have air in my lungs, there is always a way to keep going.
