It’s at times like these
It’s at times like these
When reality shows its face to us
Reflected in the most unlikely places
In the most unlikely people
When Truth offers itself up
Like a looking glass
To level your perception of yourself
To show you your reflection
Upon the face of reality
These are the times
When every cell in your body
Triumphs over whatever is unsettling you
When every thought sparks
And catches fire
Like the cityscape lighting up at night
It’s at times like these
When alive is no longer just an adjective
When it’s no longer something out of your grasp
When it’s no longer something to want
It’s at times like these
When *alive
becomes who you *are
