Human


I am here against my will.

image

I am here to face trials, joy, pain, ecstasy, suffering and the other individual souls sharing this world.

That’s what I was told, in the beginning.

After the war…

It’s not quite what I was led to believe.

But…. I have to admit…

Sometimes, I have joy.

Sometimes, I have trials.

But, I always suffer…

For the loss of one and the inevitability of the other.

I am here against my will.

It’s not the way I thought it would be.

When I was born into the world of men I became part of a collective conscience.

A consciousness capable of ignorance and hate; love and honor.

Dueling banjos….

I am human…

Against my will…

image

My individuality was lost when they gave me a name.

My baby footprint is proof that I have arrived; measured and weighed, found acceptable, for now.

A part of the hive…

I became part of a family tree whose roots suck the earth out of life.

I didn’t have a choice.

I am a lottery.

I am a gamble.

I dwelt in envy and jealousy at the beginning, and shook my first at the sky.

A poison leaf on a dying branch…

I spit on the earth, a time or two.

I am human, through no fault of mine own….

image

I was there at the beginning, as we’re we all; without number or time.

I was a valiant warrior in the War for Heaven, as were you, and you and you.

We were told that to become MAN was our reward, our battle right, our “spoils”…
You know why I came…?

Down here, I mean…

The reason I am here, to face trials, joy, pain, ecstasy, suffering and the other individual souls sharing this world?

Because, this is what I was told, and it’s got me thru it all, up to this point:.

But, I am human

Against my will….

But, aware of it.

He told me;

“Remember, my child. The most important thing in the world, is not of the world.”

image

It’s what I believe.

It’s what keeps me going.

Going home…
