To be human,
is it to dream?
To achieve one’s goals,
by any means?

Or is it to love?
To dance through life,
and come along,
when the music calls?

To be human,
what does that mean?
When half the world is crying,
while the other is sound asleep?

To be human,
is it to be free?
But how, just how,
when we’re our own worst company?

To be human,
is to be afraid.
To be afraid of letting go,
and looking past our own egos.

To be human,
is to stay behind.
How could we ever grow,
when we’re choosing to be blind?

To be human,
is not easy,
so much is true,
but what is it then?

Now don’t look at me,
I’m asking YOU…

To my fellow WordPressers around the world:

I wish you all joyful holidays and a peaceful end of the year. No matter where you are in the world, when you’re reading these lines I want you to know this: You’re being loved, you’re not alone and we are all in this “life” together.

Here’s to being human. Here’s to us. Cheers!

  1. Happy holiday. I think to be human is to be cut off from each other and then spend our lives trying to figure out what’s missing, what went wrong and why we can’t fix what’s broken and stop the violence. Your post is excellent. We are limited by our 5 senses and the constant lies we are fed by greedy, rich, men who know nothing but ego and hatred. People forced into poverty, divided by gender, color and everything else. A world filled with differences that should be celebrated but instead, are used against all of us. We need to dismantle the “power over others,” structure and revisit the horrible things we have been manipulated into believing. Well, that’s my take on it, anyway. LOLOL
