Nerves rattling my insides like a bird cage full of surround sound, my instincts tell me to stand up and move forward. I am everything that I have ever been. I am all that I was and will be. But more than anything, I want this notch on the timeline to be a turning point. From this day forward, I will arise. Manhood will have a definition compatible to me - existing from this moment on. I will have bones like will, unbreakable by human curse.
I will be alive.
Tomorrow, I will be alive.
