Complicated with every breath,
The darkness covers the light,
I feel lost,
The current is pulling me this way and that,
I have no control,
Things happen that we don’t understand,
We pay the price for our mistakes,
Live to the fullest with no regrets,
Life. What is it?
We can’t see it,
It is alive in our beating hearts,
That helps us move on when life falls apart,
When life gives us lemons,
We make lemonade,
Live, learn, laugh, love
The most natural words in the English language,
Hope and forgiveness,
Say goodbye to the drama and imperfections that make us human,
Because that’s life

The idea was very good, but you might want to look at putting in a few periods. Just a suggestion, and overall well written.

This is such a nice concept, and I thought it flowed nicely. Good job! :)
