We Are Alive

Beating hearts and dumb decisions
and unfounded giant egos
define who we are.
We are alive.

Taking risks without thinking twice
and regretting wor ds we said
in anger and fear.
We are alive.

“I’m sorry. I didn’t mean it.”
“Forgive me. I can change.”
But we don’t know how.
We are alive.

Mistakes made and trust broken a thousand times.
We beg for infinite chances,
but refuse to give them.
We are alive.

The ones pushed too far are crazy
and too sensitive and neurotic,
and we are always right.
We are alive.

“Life goes on”, “don’t stop believing”,
“everything happens for a reason”.
We are gaslighted by romance and comedy.
We are alive.
