We spend more time thinking and wondering
what we are & what we are not.
We are human.
We are skin & bones
& we have beating hearts.
I begin to to understand that
we have more flaws than we think we might.
We are startlingly & marvellous
We are not forever
We are not permanent
We will soon rust & burn and fade away,
with the faith & hope that our souls will be what we could not.
