Being Human

Updated on December 5, 2015

What makes you who you are?

The fire inside you to reach the stars

The zeal to live, the passion for your art

Or is it the compassion in your heart?

What is your true identity?

Is it already written in your destiny?

Free will or fate –

Which is the road you’re going to take?

Success, money, power and glory-

We want it to be a part of our story.

Will power and courage it may summon,

Keep on striving and reach the horizons.

Realize your dreams, you are here for a while.

Live with a purpose and exit in style.

Honour the life that the creator has given.

You’re human only if you are being human!

      Human has many facades--we must be the best character that we can be in the game of life.

      @MsDora Not just for people nearing the exit but all the more important for young people to live a purposeful life.

      "Live with a purpose and exit in style." A great motto to live by especially for those of us who are nearer to the exit than the entry.

      That is one nice poem, and interesting observation of some of things we humans should bear in mind. I Liked it reading.
