I live...

From my mother's womb 
to entering into this sphere 
The journey had been exciting
my bubble curiosity ruled in the air

Love and praises were showered
Temptation never seemed a struggle
I played, read, ate and slept
Life was smooth and nothing to trouble

The mighty time changes everything 
And so, it didn't spare my life 
Simply living it anyway is not enough 
A reason must be there, I strife

I live... to appreciate beautiful life
despite the complexities it offers
I live... to fulfill all my dreams
that I watch every day and night
I live... because I am hopeful
that tomorrow will be better
I live... to spread happiness
as life is too short to be sad
I live... to read, write and learn
because my knowledge is mine
I live... not to change the world
but to change myself
I live... to give my existence a reason
that this world would appreciate
