when we were dead

do we really own us poem by steven james humphreys

even though you know you exist

can you say with certainty

that you own your

own ‘consciousness’?

I’ll bet you don’t think

you created it

and, if this is so

did we exist before we were born?

does this mean we were dead?

if so, how long were we dead

before we were born?

do we really own us?

I would say

God owns


I think everyone

knows we didn’t

make ourselves.

but, you and I

know for sure

we are here

right now,





cause’ it solely depends

upon who you
