Titanium is a chemical element with the symbol Ti and the atomic number 22. Titanium has a low density and is a strong, lustrous, corrosion-resistant transition metal with a sliver colour.

Titanium has an exceptional resistance to a broad range of acids, alkalis, natural waters and industrial chemicals when compared to steel. Titanium is also able to withstand high heat without any reduction of weight. Steel can stand around 2,700F but titanium can stand 3,300F!

Another plus point for titanium is that it can be flexed or bowed repeatedly without breaking or rupturing. Titanium does not shatter in subzero weather. Because it is non-poisonous, plus it is biologically inert and light, titanium is used in surgical implants for the human body.

In short, titanium is strong.

Everyday we walk in a sea where there are plenty of corrosive words, attitudes and behaviours which are as poisonous as industrial chemicals. To withstand, we need to be resistant and be able to withstand without breaking down. We need to be strong.

We need to be able to withstand the fires of arsonists who would like to see us burn without ever fulfilling our dreams in Life. We must withstand the lava of destruction to our souls. We have to be able to not shatter in freezing temperatures of the Ice Queen's world that could freeze any love, joy, laughter and Life.

Our hearts must be biologically inert and not be filled with poison.

And when Life throws us a curveball, we bend it like Beckham repeatedly until it comes to a point that we do it without effort.

When we get shot we get up.

When we get shot we won't fall.

We do not shatter.

We do not corrode.

We are resistant.

We are strong.

We are Titanium.


  1. They just put titanium clips in my abdomen to take out my gallbladder!

  2. I love this song. Sia is one of my favorite female vocalists. "Shoot me down, but I get up."
    You are such an inspiration, Evelyn. Sending Love.
