This Is Life

It seems so hard,
day by day,
pushing forward,
to live on.
We try to live,
but it's so hard.
We all come out of this,
with battle scars.
Scars on our body,
scars on our mind,
scars on our heart,
our lives are on the line.
We push through,
day by day.
Wishing somehow,
that our pain would go away.
Wishing somehow,
for someone to lead us,
protect us,
show us the way.
We struggle.
We fight.
We live.
We die.
We laugh.
We scream.
We cry.
We dream.
We push on,
in this thing called life.
