On Being a Better Human


the art of being

a better human rests in

accepting kinship


and knowing that you

are not all there is, neither



there is a point to

it all – to being. you’re not

some arbitrary


bit of matter flung

from a misty void or thought

up from the mind of


a madman. you’re a

member of a grand body

intended to grow,


shape, praise – honor life.

you’re not meant to shrink away,

wallow in smallness


or worse – crush others

in your quest for distinction.

you must simply “be.”
