Alive Today


I think that I’m alive today.

Gazing at the strange reflection

that stares back at me

in the morning,

as I get ready.


Wonder if I’m really so far off base?

Some things make more sense

than others do these days.

I’ve been incomplete,

and abandoned in so many ways.

Somehow, I’ve made a little space.


I think I’m alive today.

Maybe I can tell the memories

that they can go away.

So far,

I’ve survived all their games.

I’m not sure if winning

and staying alive are the same.


I’ll take what I can get.

I’ll do everything I can.

Take it as it comes.

I hope you understand,

that I’m no hero;

I’m just a simple man,

trying to make my way.

Feeling alive today.
