Awfully Alive

There is this building to which I am in awe
its concrete standing tall and strong
its entrance offering breeze and flow
intricate ceilings, ornamental windows

I am amazed at how alive it is
as if the pores inhale and exhale
as if the walls lean on each other
and the doors wave goodbyes to those who left for the day

The building breathes of humans’ fumes
of our hopes and desires
of our demands and complains
of our frustration and exhaustion

and I am utterly speechless
feeling awfully small and ashamed
at how dead human beings in this building are
at how alive this building can be in our stead
