The Moments That Make Us Human

Updated: Feb 10, 2022

The feeling of skin

on your skin


The hot breath

from a woman on your neck,

as she sleeps in your arms.


The soft and gentle lips on yours


The moment in a fight

when you want to quit,

but you keep fighting


Food so good,

that it is an experience


The emotion that a song stirs


The colors of a sunset,

on a beautiful summer night


The times when you were afraid,

petrified,

but you did it anyway


The desire to believe in the part of you that believes


The smile of a happy child


The way a mom looks at her newborn,

shortly after birth


The painting that makes you feel so many inexpiable things


The theory that makes you question reality


The man jumping into a river,

to save a drowning stranger


The moment when you tell someone you love them,

and they say it back to you,

and they truly mean it


The poem that helps you understand

what it feels like to be human,

and the understanding,

that you’re not alone in this


It’s moments like these,

that make me feel alive,

and appreciate,

what it might mean,

to be a conscious human


They help me have hope

and see the potential in living.


-C.H.
