What Does It Mean To Be Human?
By Bryan Strain
What does it mean to be human?
I think that I should know.
Do I have time for all of it?
How much can I grow?
I’ve decided reading is the key,
to find out Every part.
The pain, the pleasure, the interesting,
the depths of human heart.
I’ve lived and died so many times,
through things that I have read.
Will I have time to read it all,
before I’m gone and dead.
A problem now I’ve spotted in,
my little reading theory.
If I read from morning into night,
will this answer my query?
I see a balance must be struck,
to really understand.
You must read to gain what can’t be learned
by living it firsthand.
