Being alive

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!
