To be human

to bear necessary struggle with
discomfort etched in each moment
to sleep away today's defeat and
dream of miracles tomorrow

to harbour love for the world but
detest at your own shadow
to look outward scrambling for
fear of looking inwards

to survive ordeals and trials with
all the courage mustered
to engrave harsh lessons on inner walls so 
they may bear tomorrow's winds

to travel far; weather your soul as
what's left behind aches
to look back, ahead and within; not
knowing which path beckons loudest

to seek a heart that beats in
a way close to your own
to dread failing fragile bonds that
bind souls and journeys alike

to question ones existence through
sun, rain, cloud and dark
to be human in every moment yet
forget that truth time and time again
