I

Location

I

Invent the non-existent

Realize the reality of the unreal

Imagine the unimaginable

Read an unwritten story

I create

 

Accept the possibility of the impossible

Expect the unexpected

Explore the unexplored

Theorize the unexplained

I discover

 

Hear with my eyes

Read with my fingers

Speak with a different tongue

Write with a wooden finger

I communicate

 

Laugh without the smile

Cry without the tears

Cherish what was lost

Receive, and give

I empathize

 

Unravel a mystery

Break through all boundaries

Open your eyes

Maybe open mine

I teach

 

Quarrel without cause

Stand up for my beliefs

Clutch the folded flag

Burn the shroud

I rage and I mourn

 

Scientist

Writer

Lover

Teacher

Mother

Father

Warrior

Daughter

 

Born, Live, Die

 

I am humanity.

What are you?
