What It Means To Be Human
I. Move with the current, not against it/They say it’s too challenging, too tough to swim upstream/I’m not wired that way/It does not come organically/So I move my arms and kick my legs as best I can to reach the shallow end.
II. They say to lower expectations/To not expect is to maintain happiness/To not be crushed by unexpected blows, stars misaligned, planets out of whack/But isn’t hope, on some level, part of being alive?
III.Loneliness can still find you/Even when you know all about being alone/ Even when you’ve been doing it for years/When you dine by yourself/When you walk in the sunshine, contentment running in your veins/ More than contentment running in your veins.
This is what it means to be human.
