Alive

Written by: Vijay Daniel M

When do you feel alive,
When do you feel that drive?

When you're running up that hill
As the rest are standing still,
When against the tide you stand,
When you hold a beggar's hand,

When you have a path to choose
With everything to lose,
When you fight for that dream,
As the ones around you scheme,

When you're consumed by fire,
When you're filled with righteous ire,
When you walk with head high,
When you always question why,

When their lies you disavow,
When you have no victories to show
And you refuse still to bow,
Think about it, "Am I alive now?"
