Why do you say I am not alive

I want to live and get a chancet to thrive

I depend on you so you can do what you want with me

but because I'm small is no reason to kill me

My heart is beating just like yours

I understand it's fear you want to get rid of me for

Nothing personal just my life or my chance at one

could I at least meat you before it's done

But he won't be around so you think leting me live would only drag me down

But I rise higher with everything that dosn't kill me

Because I see that you love me

Even though you claim I'm simply a body part

If so then I'm your heart

because a part of you will die if you get rid of me

and life is hard so lets take it on together
