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
