Today's poem talks about Resurrection. The poets remembers his mothe emphasis on the things that matters.
COMING AS HUMAN
Let me come again as human. One who can be hurt and can love. Of all the gifts man can ask, it is to be human, I seek. It is to be human I want to be in my next life.
I know that I haven't lived a perfect life. And I have not been true to myself, but I don't want to live the alternative and the eerie silence that accompanies it.
THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS
Let me be born again as human and not the hazy servants of mortals. My former life was that of a murderer who had forgotten how to feel. A killer who did not know how to love. A cheater who buys cars he can not ride.
My former life was the euphoria of emotionlessness.
Now, I want to be reborn. To have a rebirth, to feel.
Because it is the only thing my Mama told me ever matters.
