Human Being

Hi, Is it okay for me to seat with you? I heard you crying yesterday My walls tell me it wasn’t your first time You cry often they say Even said that they saw you with bunch of pills once But you shook your head and walk away Is it okay for me to hug you? I am sorry for being a terrible neighbour I should have smile more just for you Wave and wish you a peaceful day On days I see you hanging outside I should have joined you, to keep you company Is it okay if I still hold on to your hands? Please know that I need you I need your sad smile Your half-hearted laugh that sometimes rings through our walls Your acknowledge nod, a confirmation of my physical existence My being is in your reflection With you I can be human So allow me to feel your pain To carry your worries and pray for your hope Let me be your rainbow on cloudy days A promise of sunshine yet to come Let me share with you my life Hi Let breakdown our walls and open our heart Set ourselves free from drowning sea of emotion Connect to the world as beings Connect to the world as humans See that you and I are not foreigners or alien to each other We are one and the same human being

I agree, Ibrahim, we are all human beings. We all need each other, to sit together, to talk together. To share our lives.

Really well stated Ibrahim, we are all human beings bouncing around in this soup hoping to find something to hold onto. Excellent!
