We Hapless Beautiful Many

We Hapless Beautiful Many, Artist's Palette, Death Valley National Park, California, United States of America
These awkward, fumbly, funny humans
Gawd! We hapless, beautiful many!
I love us all, with all our flaws
As we stumble through uneven times
Struggle to find our way in uncharted lands

Is there nothing quite so extraordinary
As a gathering of the confused
The bewildered
The shocked
All finding comfort and strength
Through others no stronger than we

We discover
In our collective strength
And courage
And wisdom
And tenacity
How much of these
We each ourselves posses

Armed with them
We super humans of faith
And possibility
We master what was unmasterable
We triumph when tragedy seemed certain
Oh, we magnificent beings

Who would ever suspect
We were capable of such things
When observing ourselves
In just the everyday?

None but ourselves
But that is all we need remember
