I Live For The

I live for the feel of the sun on my pale skin
I live for the wind in my hair
I live for the earth under my feet
I live for the sky above my head
I live for the music that inspires me
I live for the words of praise from the people who love me
I live for the friend who never gave up
I ive for the sister who will never betray me
I live for the mother who knows me for me
I live for the father who pushes me forward
I live for the teacher who always believed
I live for the enemy who could never really hate
I live for the future i will bring
I live for the world at my feet
I live for the simple wonders
I live for the embrace of a faithful lover
I live for the faith i will one day find
I live for the sacrifices i will make
I live for the truth behind the lies
I live for the mistakes i have made
I live for the pure human instinct
I live for the people who still need me
I live for the night that consumes me
I live for the end that will one day come
I live for the sake of living
I live because dying would be losing.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
