This poetic perspective is for artists, writers, musicians, activists, entrepreneurs, students, and seekers who want to express their true selves. If you’re struggling with your identities or feeling pressure to conform to societal expectations then this poem is for you. The poem’s playful and light-hearted tone appeals to people who are looking for a fun and uplifting reading experience.

In 2016 I self-published my first book called “Human Doing.” In it, I wrote a poem to encapsulate the essence of my philosophy on life. This post shares the poem as encouragement and support of you living your life as you were always meant to: as yourself.

Before the poem, here are some AI reflections for you from chatGPT:

The idea of individuality

The poem “Human Doing” captures the essence of individuality and the importance of embracing our unique selves. In a world that often tries to push us into a cookie-cutter mold, it can be liberating to let go and just be who we are.

It encourages us to let go of the need to conform and instead, embrace who we are. By doing so, we can create a world filled with diversity and freedom. This freedom allows us to explore our own paths, make our own choices, and become who we truly are.

The idea of individuality has been explored in various forms of art and literature. The concept of the “self” is a central theme in the works of renowned philosophers such as Rene Descartes and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. In literature, characters such as Holden Caulfield from “The Catcher in the Rye” and Jay Gatsby from “The Great Gatsby” are prime examples of individuals who struggle with finding their own identities.


Let’s be free

Human Doing

You do you and I’ll do me

Oh how happy life can be

When you are you and I am me.

Connected but detached,

We can finally be free.

The space to play,

A place to grow,

Becoming who we are,

We encourage all who we know

You do this and I’ll do that

No one is the same:

What a beautiful fact.

The world’s filled with choices

They’re there for you to make

Whatever you do,

Creates the path that you’ll take.

You can journey together,

You can journey alone

But at the end of the day,

We’re all going home.

Soon it’s all over,

In the blink of an eye

And we’re back to stars drifting

In an endless black sky.
