'Because we are human'

Because we are human







Stifled by time

Long and drawn out -

Well over due

It happens to many -

We see few.

Because we are human…

Setting goals, making plans

Paying bills; following demands.

Because we are human…

Reaching out, falling down

Some are saved; whilst others’ drown.

Because we are human…

Crossing oceans or

Leaning over the fence

A life ordinary: A life intense.

All full up or discontent.

Because we are human…


I sit, uneasy at your gaze -

your face confused; a maze.

I’m human, I’m scared

I love this poem so much. I adore the simplicity of the poem structure, which contrasts so beautifully with the philosophical content. And the last line almsot screams out. Beautiful.
