"To love is to surpass one's self."


Anatomy says we are muscles and bones,
Woven together with
magnets and shelled by skin.

Science says that we are a development
Of theories,
Chemicals, created by
Reactions.

Logic says that we have one hundred
Years to live, and some even less than that
Because logic says we are
A
Statistic;

But if you really were to
Break past the skin
You wouldn't find
A heartbeat,
A species,
Or a clock,

You would find fire.
