{13/365} more than a body full of bones

You are more than a body full of bones.

You are stronger than the spine that allows you to stand, or the ribs that enclose your heart.

Your skin is thicker than the delicate veins running beneath lead you to believe.

Your name holds more meaning than simply the letters that make it up.

Your spirit is filled with more light than the stars that speckle the blackened sky, or the streetlights to guide home a lost soul.

The vibrations in your voice tell more than just the words that are spoken through it.

You are more than what you possess; money cannot buy what you are.

You are the pigment in a rainbow to signify the ending of a storm.

Your potential reaches further than your job title.

Your dreams are more than just a false reality to be awoken from.

Your life is more than just years along an infinite timeline, it is made up of moments that change the course of history and validate a life.

You will not grow weaker as the years go by; you will be enriched, growing and expanding, much like a tree with many more branches and leaves.

Eventually, you will be somebody’s home; their trusses to hold them up, their shingles to protect from the rain, and their window to a clear view.

You are more than what you can fathom;

more than a name, more than a body, more than a voice.


You are more than a body full of bones.


I hope you all can read these words and apply them to your own life.
