The Crash

Posted by

Energy, Energy, ENERGY!
You’re feeling great, like no one can stop you,
and you just want to keep going forever.
You feel like you can run a marathon
or bike up a mountain
or jump out of a plane
or do 500 laps around a football field
or end poverty
or cure cancer
or talk to your ex again
and make things right
and have a great life
and get married
and have kids
and… then it hits you.
You can’t do any of it.
Your body just gave out.
You remember that you’ve been up for days.
Your lack of sleep finally catches up, and you crash.
