Inside

written by: Juan Perez

 

Inside of all of us
Every single one of us
Our human character
Our feelings, our emotions
Our essence, our spirit
All that makes us alive

Inside of all us
Every single cell of life
Our love and losses
Our doing right, our doing wrong
Our strength, our weaknesses
All that makes us unique

Inside of all of us
Is a zombie waiting to come out
