Humanity

Written for:  Poets United Midweek Motif~Human  (posted by Susan)
Write a new poem giving what is human its place in the natural world, the solar system, galaxy, and/or universe.

What
is
human?
Compassion,
willingness to aid
strangers, even when it is not
convenient. Ability to view each person
equally as a human, each as entitled to life, love and kindness, as you are.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Such awareness is so noble that leaves one so satisfied and stable for having that sense of humanity!
