What is it to be human?
Is it the physical state
in which we are in
for only a moment in time?
Or is it our process of thinking,
and the complex emotions behind it?

If being human was the blood that courses
through your veins,
and the flesh and bones that
eventually rot in time,
then we are just meer travelers of this realm.

If being human is a way of thinking
and feeling, then what specifically are we
supposed to think or feel?
What is really the purpose of a human mind?

Maybe being human isn't about the physical,
emotional, or mental aspect of it all.
Maybe there is no right or wrong answer.
Even though our species has been around since the dawn
of time, we are still trying to figure out what is
human. I think our purpose as human is just a trial
and error in whatever generation we live in.
