Vital Tumult

Have you ever noticed
How exciting the tumult is
The uproar and confusion
How vital and present it feels

We battle through it
We quell the uproar
We resolve the confusion
We overcome

And it feels good
Even in the midst
Of the worst of times
These are the best of times

So I wonder how it is
We fail to acknowledge
Just how much
We love a good war

We are a species
Of adrenaline junkies
Bent on our own destruction
Because it makes us feel alive
