Survive- AL

Posted on

“My whole life has been occupied with trying to solve problems and perhaps that is why I have developed the ability to create and solve a multitude of problems that I have been constantly beset with. There is a singular word that is at the root of everything that I undertake to try and reconcile. I tend to think that the beginning syllable of my first name (Al) was somehow destined to become the last part of the word that is the epitome of my existence. I will always be able to keep my nose to the grindstone because this word is like an encouraging voice that whispers in my mind “Survive Al” or simply combined SurvivAl. So as long as I’m still breathing, I believe that this inner voice will continue to stir and encourage me to continue pressing on.” — Pops
