Living This Life.

This thing called life

That is so full of strife,

Do we hold on to knives,

Or pull God close to our sides?

Thunder and lightening assail us.

Stress makes us want to

Get on a bus

To a place where we could

Celebrate wins with no loss,

A place that is safe,

Where people trust us.

This life we live,

Takes all that we have to give.

We are told to forgive

Even when we don’t believe

That it would lead to better things,

Like peace on earth

Or diamond rings.

But what if you did

All of these things,

And still lost everything?

I want to really live.

I want my heart to sing.

I want my life to mean something.

I want my life to be worth living.
