Human Not Being


I bought this body when it was on sale,

Which explains why it is still so stale.



I adopted these organs when they were not yet complete,

Which explains why their energy and mine still cannot meet.



I first experienced a feeling only after it was given a label,

Which explains why I haven't yet felt stable.



I once defined my identity as a cummulation of body, organs and feeling,

Which explains why I am a human without any sense of being.

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
