To be human
is to realise your vulnerabilities.
It’s to get up every day,
to even just choose to stay,
in spite of all the inevitabilities.
In spite of the grief
and the heartache
and all of the, until they arise,
It’s to just ‘keep on keeping on’
because you know that life is inherently good
with infinite possibilities.
It’s to better yourself
(and each other),
and to realise your capabilities.
It’s to make this messy old life worthwhile
helping one another to overlook the seeming ‘futilities.’
It’s to be brave
and to inspire
and to desire
and warm hands
and people who understand.
It’s to fall back in love with life
and to look into your lovers eyes
and to see, once again, the beauty of the sunrise-
This makes it all worthwhile.
The universal experience of being human-
The vulnerability is this.
To keep humaning in a world that wants to dehumanise.
