There are two states people can be in:
Existing and living.
When people live, they are joyful.
They are happy and thoughtful.
They live life to its fullest.
Take advantage of every God-given opportunity.
Utilize their knowledge to its wholest.
They are motivated, enthusiastic.
And although sometimes pessimistic,
They see the good in the world.
Look at everyone and everything positively.
For them, beauty isn't hard to see.
They see the passion in relationships.
Distinguish the uniqueness in scenes of nature.
Recognize the compassion in acts of charity.
They notice the clarity
Of the supernatural and spiritual power 
That exists in every single person.
And they embrace it to the fullest extent.
People who are living do so with no regret.
People who exist do not live life.
They are simply here.
Most people don't lend them an ear.
They don't see any good in life.
All they can think about is strife.
They don't see any purpose in living.
Misgiving is the only thing that crosses their minds.
They don't act passionately
Or with much energy.
They simply go through the motions.
Not seeing compassionate and positive notions.
Functioning on a negative potion.
They pass off many opportunities,
Labeling them as future failures.
They presume the world is made of evil entity.
Instead of goodness and nobility.
They don't think faithfully.
They exist without hope.
Without motivation.
Without purpose.
