Human beings,
always the center of the universe are we.
Forever trying to catch,
the biggest fish in the sea.

What do we see,
when we look in the mirror?
something unreal like a store window mannequin.
standing alone while nothing becomes clearer.

All our problems and complexities,
we put them on like some cute little dance.
All the while never realizing,
our own overpowering, arrogance.

We float in a misty void,
forgetting we are mortal.
What on Earth will it take,
for us to be, moral?
