To live This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By 2TBR95, Newton, MA

To exist.
A body falling and rising to the rhythm of the lungs.
Lungs, pumping to the rhythm of the body.
To live.
The soul, attuned to the laughter of the spirit.
The spirit, harmonizing with the soul's wisdom.
To fight.
Flailing arms, gasping breaths.
To go down with a prayer.
Acceptance. A smile. Peace.
