Living

Life is short
Life is meaningless
You'll never make it
Life is only
Breathing in some air
You will fail
Because dreams don't come true
Life is hard
And no one will follow through
But I say no
You don't understand
That's not all life is
That's not all this is
Sometimes it's watching the sun rise
And set
It can be worth it
With just a few words
Or even a comfortable silence
Don't let the bad things
Get you down
Or you won't notice
The little things
That make you want it
Sometimes it's an unexpected hug
Or singing in the shower
It could be sitting on the couch
Watching a cheap movie
With your best friend
It's eating ice cream when you're sad
And smiling when your glad
Maybe it's wishing on a star
Or kissing in the rain
Sometimes it's waiting for so long for
Just one thing
And it finally comes true
Or just knowing someone is there for you
It's conversations at the dinner table
With your family
It's reading a good book
or hearing a good song
It's acting in the back yard with friends
It's having the comfort
That it doesn't end here
And every now and then
When it is appropriate
Of course
It is proving to those people
Who said you weren't worth it
Wrong
And again
When appropriate
It's making a bi-polar egg
on Easter...
So, breathe in the air
Even if times aren't fair
Even if time isn't on your side
Make something of yourself
Laugh.
