On Being HUMAN


Oh, what a joy to be a tree

and always know what you will be

Or to be born a dog, or cat,

But to be human, what is that?


Examples run the gamut---

saints to sinners, without limit

No amount of contemplation

explains the maddening variation


It's nature's most elusive mystery…

Who am I and what are we?

We've searched for answers through the ages

Looked to gurus, preachers, sages.


The time has come to stop and look

not to teachers, not in a book,

but into our own hearts–now that's the trick–

to become aware of what makes us tick.
