In the beginning when I first came to earth,

I was surprised at the pain of my very birth.

It hurt.

In the middle of my life on this spinning globe,

I was ambushed by emotions of growing old.

It hurt.

In the end of my time as as human being,

I was madly in love with all I had done and seen.

It hurt.

It hurt the entire way through, from the beginning until the end.

It hurt so bad the ups and downs,

It hurts so good the love profound.

It hurt.

Yet of all the hurt that could ever be,

I loved most the hurt of being me…

…noble member of humanity.
