Now I Know, Now I Live

I tried to kill myself,

Took a bottle of pills.

Life is hard,

And I was uncapable.

But now I know, and now I live


All that we see was once one.

The trees and the stars,

I was one of them too.

Now I know, and now I live.


My oppressors and my bullies

My rapists and abusers,

They were one of them too.

Now I know, and now I live.


Whether it was God

Or the Big Bang

We are here either way

And as a cell in Earth's awesome body

It is my duty to keep her alive and well

Starting with me

Because I am awesome

And every breath I take matters so much.

Now I know, and now I live.
