The Parade of Humanity

Angels flying,

Through the night,

A mass of humanity,

Sliding through the streets,

A whirl wind,

Of sweet emotions,

A great laugh,

A sigh of relief,

A magic moment,

Lost in the time of space.

We were shocked,

We were amazed,

Sitting there,

Alive in that moment,

The music,


The sounds,

Revealing the light,

A gasp,

The future,

Pushing forwards,

Towards us,

We were here,



Magically breathing,

Through the trials,

Those life steps,

Wondering where to go next.

A son dies,

A daughter is born,

A father’s laugh,

A mother’s sigh,

We are just movement,

We are alive,

A parade,

A parade of humanity,

Always moving forward,

Sometimes looking back,


What we have become,

And what we have ahead,

This moment,

This parade of humanity.
