This is a repost, I accidentally
deleted this one so I'm putting
it back up.
Some say it makes us human
Some say it makes us animals
Some try to avoid it
Yet others seek it
It follows life as it follows death
It follows love as it follows loss
With it we are everything
Without it we are nothing
It drives us towards each other when we are scared
And it pushes friends apart
It causes problems
And it offers solutions
With it we will destroy ourselves
Without it we could fly
But no matter the cost
I'm glad I feel pain
For it reminds me I am alive.
