Human race

Why are we called the human race?

Are we humans in a race?

A race to survive
for a lack of wisdom
to stop and see
each other
in need
of a caring embrace?

So there is a race
with wonderful achievements
even conquering space
testimony to our ability
to question and create

Togetherness makes our
power much greater
to explore and discover
land, seas, skys
deeper, further, higher

but elusive the answers

to so many whys

even more difficult to ponder in this age
of the pandemically sleep deprived

personally I think it’s time to rethink

even slow down and have a rest

even lie down and have a nap

better still have some proper sleep

and become dreamers again

full of well rested creativity

and emotional stability.
