Human and Life

Human and Life

what's life to you?
what does it take to be human?
you can't have one without the other?
a spirit or a memory can live on even after the body has decayed.
being human in my eyes is to have compassion, will, and faith
to have sadness, anger, hatred and guilt
to have love, happiness, joy, and understanding
life is many many things
but can you truly live if you cannot talk?
or taste?
what if you couldn’t move
paralyzed forever
or maybe you have lost everything
eyes, nose, mouth, ears, ...your face in general
your legs and arms torn away by the shoulders and hips

you can move your head
and squirm your body
but nothing more
how would you stay sane?
how can you be human after that?
how can you do the impossible after being shoved back into the womb?
some can
some can't
the war did it to one man
and many others i bet
war can stop
we just have to make it possible
we can dream a better dream
and make this world a better place
but only we can do it
the Earth is counting on us
weather we destroy it or help it is entirely in our hands

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
