Life,
Something not many know.
Maybe not even I,
But begin to see I do
With waking eyes.

I once believed
Life owed us the world.
Instead,
I now realize
That we owe life,
More than we can pay.

We should embrace,
With open arms.
Take it from
In front of our face
With a confident smile.

We owe life this,
For it gave us a chance
To live just once.
Don't let it escape
Don't let go
Grip your chance
Tight in both hands
