"have the courage to live, kid,
because anyone. yeah, yeah, anyone can die."

oh, darling, don't you think i know that already?
i wish yours could be the words to inspire me,
to make me love this life
the way i never have. but they aren't.

because you see, i have never been
under the impression that dying is the
brave thing to do. i know it's cowardly, low,
a dirty trick to play. (as though this were a game.)

the thing is;; i am not strong or brave,
i am not a hero. and i never claimed to be.
