Day 150 – We Were Born to Thrive

We were born to thrive
and live raucously-

and why the hell should we not?

No hardship ever backed away
’cause it was scared of us,

and no blessing ever came our way
under threat if it did not.

Nobody gave us the things we earned
and nobody made us fight,

we never got permission to thrive
and live raucously-

but why the hell should we not?

No monster ever relented,
no angel ever assisted,
no enemy ever retreated,
no friend ever stayed,

but for us,
born to thrive.

It was us, I swear, it was always us,
and much more it’s bound to be

and why the hell should it not

for us,
born to thrive?
