searching for the thread of humanity
that links us all together
the thread that reminds us
that we all need food to survive
and a bed at the end of the day.
we all need people to love
and to love us.
we all have stared at an ocean
or a burning fire
or heard the rain on the window
and breathed easier
for a few moments.
we all have a favorite food
and a night that we remember fondly.
we all know what it feels like
to stub a toe
or to nurse
a broken heart.
we all have hummed a song
not knowing any of the words
and have burnt our fingers
while preparing food
we all have cried
and we all have laughed
we all know the meaning of loss
and when the world erupts in flames
and we become enemies
somehow it seems that
it doesn’t matter
that we are all human.
can’t we find some other way
to make our voices heard
without simply raising our voices
i’m searching for humanity
in a world of humans.

Hi Lynda! Thank you so much.
Hey Etti, have you watched the Human documentaries? There’s 3 of them. I think you will Love them.
Thanks for the recommendation Matthew! I’ll have a look 🙂
Thank you for sharing the story of the tree that refused to die, that went on to form a chair where a man could sit and pray. What an example of courage!
Aw, thanks for reading that piece Simone, and thanks for visiting here!
