What did you do with yours today?
No other species has it. Not like us.
This wonderful, awesome thing.
We don't use it very often
and we don't get to see it very often
but when we do...
When we do, and we recognise it,
we give each other goosebumps
and bring tears to each other's eyes.
When we do see it, we know it in every cell,
that this is what makes everything worthwhile,
this rare, precious, and yet so easily available thing.
If only we could remember to ask ourselves,
What did I do with my humanity today?
Anything? Nothing? And ask again tomorrow.
