You fight. I’m talking to you. Don’t let this world get the best of you. Don’t let it take you alive. Don’t let this world beat you until you give up. No matter what happens, you keep going. Sure, life is going to pummel you but dammit you better fight back. Kick, scratch, claw, do whatever it takes to keep breathing, keep going, to stay alive.
All you have — all you’ve ever had, really — is heart. A whole lot of fucking heart. Don’t give it up now.
Lots of people have given up on this life, on their loves, on this world. Don’t be one of them. Don’t walk this earth with a life foregone but not yet ended.
Simply refuse to be defeated. Refuse to go down. Refuse to be one of the ones who never really made it, who never really got what they wanted, who lived a life less than they could have.
Fight until your last moment, your last thought, your last breath.
Rage on. Don’t just live. Rage.
The light only dies if you let it. Don’t fucking let it. Fight.
