I’m sorry I haven’t been writing as frequently, I am actually in the hospital for a blood infection. I’m recovering nicely, and should be back to writing regularly after I get out of here. In the meantime, enjoy this poem about dopamine:
In the grind and hustle, we stake our claim,
In the relentless game, we play without shame.
Through trials and strife, we push the line,
The dopamine hit, like a shot of fine wine.
As challenges taunt, we stare them down,
In this concrete jungle, we wear our crown.
With every victory, we break the mold,
The dopamine rush, more precious than gold.
So, work your edge, defy what they say,
In the dark abyss, we find our own way.
In the sweat and fire, we'll carve our name,
The dopamine rush, in this wild game.
