Loving Life

I thought I would be lost with out you
You thought that too
But i have found a place
Where i can be myself
And...well...love life

Life is worth living when you have something
To live for...
Well i found that something...
It's not a guy
It's not an idol...
It might sound selfish
But...I'm living for myself

I am living to make my world a better place
I'm living to make myself a better person
To look out for others
To put others first

But most of all im living because
I was put here for a reason
And if im still alive then I havent fufilled
That purpose....

So if you need motivation
To keep yourself breathing
Then this is it

YOU were put here for a reason
And if YOUR heart is still beating
Then YOUR purpose is still being here
