The Measure Of A Human

The Measure Of A Human prose poem

Photo by jetheriot


The human brain weighs three pounds.
The human heart weighs eleven ounces.
Human skin is seven hundreds of an inch thick.
To know a human’s mind and heart takes time.
It takes time to parse out the subtleties of their soul,
to know the content of their character.
It takes an investment of intellect.
Those who judge a person simply by the color of their skin exhibit no intellect, no intellect whatsoever.
