speculations of someone worthy

I am alive.

I eat, I breathe, I sleep. 

Constantly checking my phone, 

   Facebook notifications from an ex that doesn't deserve my time, 

but I give it to him anyway, 

cause' I am alive. 

    Meaning that since I have oxygen circulating through my being, 

          since I'm just another human walking these streets, 

              alive and bound to

                   make mistakes. 

I am alive. 

   Meaning I'm not in the news headline.

     Another  

             child

                    gunned

                           down

                                 from a driveby. 

each second that crosses me by, 

blessed from my every being cause I'm 

      alive. 

 

I'm not dead.
