It’s the air that surrounds you, but you just can’t breathe it;

It’s the feeling that you feel, but you crave its touch;

It’s the city on the horizon, you can almost see it;

It’s the edge you stand on, but your feet won’t jump;

You smell its sweet scent, but you want to taste it;

The fuel is there, but it won’t ignite;

You stand on the path, you just need to walk it;

You hear the song, you just need to dance;

You’re at the brink of life, and all you want to do is live it.
