Step 1: This is all you’ll have, get, and will never keep.

Step 2: React how you must; laugh, swear, hurt, or weep.

Step 3: Read a certain book by on Dr. Katie Mack.

Step 4: Put it down, lie awake, and have a panic attack.

Step 5: Think how small you are; know you’re smaller still.

Step 6: You will leave no mark no matter your will.

Step 7: Think of the ghosts who gave you your life.

Step 8: Accept you are a continuing of specie running rife.

Step 9: You are the inch of miles travelled by humanity.

Step 10: You are a speck that makes up a galaxy.
