The Human Experience

The Human Experience is based on a qoute from Pierre Teilhard-Dechardin.

"We are not human beings having spiritual experiences. We are spiritual beings having human experiences."

That inspired me to write the following poem:

We have created many vehicles
to transport us from one place to another.
However, there is one vehicle
greater than any other.

A gift we were each born into,
Each is unique,
as the spirit which lives inside.
We each experience differently
from the variety of opportunities
our bodies provide.

A gift received without a warranty,
no one knows how long
they will wear their shell,
but time is not important,
as long as it's worn well.

To make the most of the time we have,
each in our own way,
is all that we can do.
Nothing physical will ever see eternity.
This we know is true.

The time we share with others,
and even the lessons we learn alone,
enrich our spirits with wisdom
that without our bodies
never could be known.
