Alive

Another winding road, another hardship.
"Builds character," they say;
Well, I must be one helluva character by now I guess.
Still I smile and laugh at myself for the little quirks i have.
Like enjoying how a sneeze feels;
Ahh, Im still alive
Living in this hive.
Being pushed and prodded to conformity;
"Get with the program," they say.
Well I've always Kinda gone against the grain
Teeth into the wind
And a sailors spiteful Arrgh! every now and then.
I love being Alive
Born to Survive
"But your my family, my blood," they say.
Right... You' ve had me bleeding for years,
And never once provided a band-aid.
If time heals all wounds ,
I'm going to live to a ripe old age.
And the Sign-post says I'm Alive.
Alive, Alive, Alive.

    Carl; I like this. You say it like it is. Nothing in this world is easy. We really have to earn it, to apprechiate it. As you say you are a surviver, so am I. We are here for a reason. may you recieve many blessings in the New Year. Lucilla

    Lovely write Carl! It's very nice how you've mentioned the phrases and dissected them and entwined them in with life's experiences. Well done!

    We should all cherish life. Going against the grain is exciting, stagnant and we wither. Nice work!
