Some Call it

Photo by Joey Nguyễn:

Some call it “grit”, but I am more invested than that.

I am relentless, day after day in an office chair and then evenings working on the house.

I can’t stand to lay and watch tv, I can’t stand to be so alone in that way.

So I climb a little more every night.

Find new ways to push myself.

Sometimes I falter, sometimes for months on end.

But every time, the days pass, and I pick myself up once again.
