This Life of Human
To be content with my longing.
To have possessions in my wanting.
To be found while I am wandering.
To feel glad in my sorrow.
To lie in paradise as I mourn.
To open up as I hide.
To hunger in my fullness.
To look deeper with my eyes closed.
To hear humanity in the silence.
To understand beneath confusion.
To still hold on when I am let go.
To drop as I still carry.
To smile inside my tears.
To discover within my losses.
To be content inside my longing...
...is to Live fully, this life of human.
