- Jacob Philip
My mind and body lie still in silence.
Yet the multitudes inside me are anything but silent.
Blood brushes against the vessel walls,
showing the brilliant resilience of trillions of cells.
I am much more than that.
I contain memories of joy.
Yet, I contain memories of pain and suffering.
Neurons send sharp signals straight down the spine.
I am a conglomerate stone made of my own past.
Each experience adds another pebble.
I am constantly evolving, becoming sharper,
ready to be used as a sword and fulfilling my destiny.
My nerve fibers form the roots of an endless
tree of knowledge.
My emotions are the fruits.
Experiences fertilize the soil so that my tree grows.
