Most of all, be that human being

Most of all, be that human being

Be that clown you wanted to be
be that teacher you never became
be that scientist you have been hiding inside
be that fashion designer you never dared to be

Be that painter you were supposed to be
be that handy-(wo)man you dreamed of becoming
be that best friend and child you should have been
be that parent and spouse you always admired

Be that dawn you wish you always had been

Be the gardener of your own little kingdom
be the poet of your own bestseller list
be the librarian of your own bookshelf
be the guru of your own school

Be the singer in your own opera
be the musician in your own concert hall
be the counsellour on your own couch
be the sports-(wo)man in your own arena

Be the sun on your tiny piece of earth

But most of all, be that human being
who cares for everyone and everything
be the human being you could have been
be the human being you should have been

    1. Thank you for your comment. I am working on a project that needs my attention. So not much time for poetry these days. But I will be back!
