Life Matters

paradise2

 

Animal-istic!
Ferocious and fun loving

Plant-istic!
Whimsical and free living

Human-istic!
Compassionate and full of giving

All so distinct
And then,
By the Magician’s wand
All rolled into one, the human being!

What a jewel in this earthly crown!
Yet does he even know
How he stands out?!

By incredible design
A behavioral machine,
Reacting to stimuli
With unending zest.

Fascinated by the senses
With everything he sees
He hears
And touches!

Yet, not only is he the jewel in the crown
He is also a crown within the jewel!

Rippling
Through every  cell
Every muscle
Every organ
And laid deep within
Are gems…

When uncovered
This vegetative
Animalistic human
Comes alive!

Alive! With a truth
That surpasses any sensory stimulation
That puts to shame the conquests of conquerors!

Why?!
Because this journey
Can only be made alone
This journey
Makes you yield all your weapons
This journey
Is the making of mankind

When love, understanding, gratitude surface
Humility is second nature
The next person as deserving as you
Compassion for life and all that lives
Now matters.

Life matters!

  1. Utterly compelling. So deliciously precise and purposeful. Metaphysical and spiritual and most beautifully of all, I think, can speak equally to most creeds and faiths.
