A poem about the human experience.

To be mortal, vulnerable, finite

To hurl toward an inevitable impending doom

To feel afraid of death though it will come

 

To be angry, vengeful, furious

To tremble and shake with rage

To bubble and boil over with hatred

 

To be sad, lonely, despondent

To estrange thyself

To wallow and wither away

 

To be ill, sick, diseased

To cough and sneeze your lungs out

To swallow pills and pray

 

To be blessed, lucky, fortunate

To give thanks and gratuity

To share the wealth and give back

 

To be carefree, untroubled, content

To watch a flower bloom

To sleep soundly at night

 

To be happy, joyful, merry

To dance as if no one is watching

To fly high above the clouds

 

To experience the soul

To live, to laugh, to cry, to love

To be human
