temporary residents

we humans
are only
temporary residents
on this planet
as it
is
a temporary resident
in this
solar system.
this solar system
is but a
temporary resident
in this
galaxy,
a temporary resident
in this
universe,
which itself
is likely to be
only
a temporary resident.
this beautiful fragility
connects everything
and it feels
so human.
the quality of humanity
is to live at the
mercy of forces
greater than yourself
and to attempt
what you want
all the same.
maybe that’s why
love is the epitome
of humanity.
people after all,
are only
temporary residents
in our lives
and the people
we love are
the ones
we will do
all we can
to keep in our
lives as
a permanent resident.
