I personally don't like the text, but I'm never good with text :<
Looking at it again, it also doesn't really have a defined flow [ithink] :z
"They say, and I have reason to believe, that sometimes, we're at our most alive when facing the prospect of our own mortality.
Maybe that means that if we convince ourselves that we live forever, we never really feel alive at all."
The character's colors are too similar to the ones in the background, either try darkening some, or maybe adding a bit of a glow? The text doesn't even look that bad, but the box around it is a bit rough ;\ Good luck!
