We Live

We live
We laugh, we cry, we shout, we try, we live.
We focus on others, we marry, we divorce, we hate, we love, we live.
There are two paths in life, we choose, we live.
We share, and we care, we sleep, and we dream, we live.
We believe, we trust, we lie, we live.
Were different, were the same, we live.
We take tests, we go to school, we fail, we succeed, we live.
We think, we thought, we live.
Our heart beats for a reason, we live.
Each of us our perfect for the heart that is searching for us, we live
We shine on, we feel depressed, we live.
We are confident, excited, and smart, we live.
We smell, we touch, we taste, we live.
We are beautiful, we live.
Because god says so,
We live.
