Your body is a temple,
Powered by the chambers of the heart.
Blood rushing through your veins & organs,
A biological art!
The brain housing your power!
Joining body & mind,
A cognitive puzzle 
Of thoughts & feelings you will find!
Your body is a temple,
Be careful what you eat!
Take care of romantic liaisons,
& the freaks between the sheets!
The mind body dualism,
Inner & outer worlds collide,
Social constructions,
A tabular rasa, upon which we are all Inscribed!
Your body is a temple,
Listen to your breath.
Feel your pulsing heartbeat,
Which, beats between life & death.
Be aware of your fingers,
Be aware of your toes.
Connected to your body
In which your spirit is housed.
Your body is a temple,
It's every essence is you!
If your lungs didn't inflate,
Ask yourself -What would you do?
Now focus on your breathing, 
Take some shallow breaths in.
Now exhale, whilst silently listening,
To the environment that you are in.
Your body is a temple,
Existing in this place,
Somewhere between reality, truth, & fiction,
Questioning the expression on your face?
The mind is a vast depth of cognitive space,
Processing our thoughts & feelings, 
Love, happiness, sadness, & pain!
Your body is a temple,
So make sure the foundations are strong.
And that the stones used to build your walls are protective life-long!
Your body is a temple,
Protecting everything within.
If this is survival of the fittest
The only option is to WIN!!
