LIFE IS

Life is the reason for living

Even when society has a knife at your throat

Life is the reason for giving

Even when communities are divided by a moat

Life is the reason for loving

Even when you're not worthy to vote

 

Life is more than flesh and bones

Even when many are left out in the cold

Life is more than a valuable stone 

Even when many have to leave their home

Life is more than ignorance is the tone

 

Life is unconditional love

A dance you have when alone

Life is a purpose for the soul

A story that never gets old

Life is a constantly changing goal

 

Life is you

Life is me

Life is us
