Hurts To Be Human

Another lousy day misspent… but hey.. a poem..

Remembered Love - Lost

Hurts To Be Human
by Michael Romani

It hurts to be human
It's human to feel hurt
Capturing this in the moment
Filled with grief and torment

The annals of our history
Detail the facts of tragedy
And yet hope feels our legacy
For century after century

Shadows dancing on our walls
As we seek after elusive truth
And in the end, who will recall
All the dreams of our youth

Still we suffer for our dignity
As we seek our ends in serenity
Living for the love and peace
We never knew to release

Instead of gathering it in like treasure
As life takes our forlorn measure
And still I'm glad to have walked with you
Always holding on to what we believed was true
