(16/01/2013) What is Life?

book open on table
 
What is a human life
but growing day by day?
Starting as a child,
then slowly turning grey.
 
What is a human life
but staring at the stars?
Coming to the truth
of how small we really are.
 
What is a human life
but a precursor to death?
Living for the little things
until we draw our final breath.
 
There is a voice in you,
just as there is in me.
That tells us human life,
no, all life, is poetry.
