We snatch so that when the flood comes we can toss sandbags high enough to build a wall to save our home.
We pull-up so when our loved one is screaming we can go over a wall to get to them rather than search for a door.
We climb ropes for fun, so that when we must climb ropes for freedom we can.
We burpee so that no matter how bad the beating we can always take one more punch.
We row so when the clouds surprise us in the ocean we can out-paddle the rain.
We run for the day we need hurry to a friend in need.
We lunge for that sweet burn that teaches us to handle the flames.
We push-up so we can push back against those hurting the weaker.
We squat for the time we’re hit so hard we buckle…yet we still stand.
