To Be Human @dougstuber

Topic - Positive mindset


To Be Human

is to fall in love over and over,

to never give up on any of them,

to cry for the inhumanity, and try to

overcome all that surrounds us by creating

a closeness with those in proximity, both

geographical and philosophical. It is to

carry those loves in our heart, flooding our

minds no matter how gone they are. And

to put others’ needs first, understand their

flaws, work on our own so we can be

better healers. It is to take it all in and

follow our dreams no matter how preposterous;

to pull apart another brown paper bag and

to write it all out, no matter how choppy.

So take my hand and make it all better

before I repeat the painful parts until

I can no longer act. To struggle past

obstructions and obligations, self-imposed and

expected; to wallow in joy, build strength and

change what we can for the better. To give.
