Who Are We? Poem by Poppie Mira


Are we gods and ancestors?
Are we giants and heroes
With heart made of stone
Oh life, tell us

Are we the products of self absorption?
From the reactants of hatred and greed
In the presence catalyst of ignorance
Oh life, define us

Are we inhuman with our shameful eyes?
That seeks darkness
And chase smoke
Oh life, forgive us

Are we pain to the world?
With our faded life
Forged identities
Oh life, fill us
