Some people say that what sets us apart from animals
Is the reasoning capacity.
“I think, therefore I am”
Says the famous quote known to many.
But whilst considering thinking as the sole
And ultimate human experience,
Overshadows something else that
Everyone should have the right to
But, sadly enough, to some is oftentimes neglected.
Likewise, a house doesn't stand still
Without solid foundations,
Humanity cannot be fully experienced
If dignity isn't granted, preserved or respected.
Some things in life are oftentimes
Taken for granted like the air we breathe.
But a closer look around
Unveils that far too many people
Are not experiencing their full human capacity.
Consequently, rather than crediting thinking
As the ultimate symbology of human existence,
I say that only dignity is capable of
Lifting anyone from sub humanity's dungeons
And leading towards the true
and full value of human life.
