…to be human

Tricina, Sicily, 2019

10.
Anyone who is currently ill, afraid or anxious, whatever the reason, this is for you
If you’re experiencing loss, separation or loneliness, whatever the reason, this is for you
Anyone who is angry, frustrated or bored, whatever the reason, this is for you

Allow yourself to feel these things, allow yourself to be human
then step away, observe, consider

our anxious eyes look to the future, a place we can shape from the present
our grief expresses love, fed by memories and thankfulness
our helplessness unmoors us, freed to think, to breathe, to give

attention, reflection, insight
this is what it means to be human

in chorus to talk and to listen
to rest and remember
to vibrate and create
to reach out and be one

This is what it means to be human
and together we are the world
