The human condition – it’s what makes us sentient beings, what ties us together, and eventually causes us to face our own mortality. Here is a collection of fiction and poetry that explores the facets of being human – both good and bad – and offers a unique perspective on human existence. An old man reflecting on his last days… A young girl dreaming of life beyond her squalid existence… A woman trapped in her grief for a dead lover… Two brothers coping with the sudden divorce of their parents… A homeless man who meets a young boy that may be his saving grace or his downfall… A family defined by its matriarch’s wacky antics… All travelers along the road of life, all defining the joys and tragedies of being human.
