Being Human



Being human encompasses so many things
Beyond the capability to walk upright
That talent is also held by bears and apes
Kangaroos hop upright, and the sea horse swims upright

So we are not that special
We navigate in mixed company

Being human comes with such blessings
That are misused
Dismissed
And Abused

So we are not that special
However, we have the capability of choice

Yet

Being human is so amazing in the scheme of things
With all the order and beauty in the universe
All the mysteries, all the light
All the gifts

I think we are that special
When we choose to be

And use everything given to us
With appreciation and respect

Being human
Makes us creatures of circumstance
And endless potential

Very thoughtful casual poetry, flows easy like a thought that speaks, I think, to everyone.

Reviewed by Ronald Hull
Being human also seems to bring out the worst in us. Like children, we plunge into ideas without thought of the consequences. I just hope we can retain being human when the crunch comes.

I think too, that there's a distinction between being merely human (we use that phrase to say we're fallible) and being humane. That we have the choice to be the latter is a great blessing, both to ourselves and to others. You bring out such good points. --Charlie

A gentle and wise view, Pax;
no crude preaching and the point
is better made and more subtly for that.
Yes!
