Living organisms are also made up of atoms and non-living too but the difference is that the living organisms' have cells which were formed from different and relevent elements which could have made up a cell and it could have multiplied to form many cells ...isssues...etc.

Atoms cannot support life...Life first started from cell. The cell could perform all those living functions but not atoms from which it was formed.
