Blood that flows red in my veins
Thoughts that loop words in my mind
Feelings that ebb and flow with time
Pain that burns hot in my chest
Air that rushes in out in breaths
Love that fills me with so much strength
Death leaves me scared and helpless
So much happens, all at once
I’m left shocked, surprised
But dear, this is what it feels
To be alive!
