Human

Just like everyone else.

You can’t help but be human
        
You can’t help but grief, mourn,   
worry, and regret
                            
It’s human nature, and you can't
change it. That is if you're a human

We can’t help but feel loathed, but in
reality, adored

That’s what mankind flings at you
A bunch of sown out emotions all bundled
Up like a bunch of rubber bands tied up
together

It’s hard to untangle them but you can
still move them away and hide them

Temporarily

They’re still there
And you’ll find them anyways

Some things have to be accepted as they are
You can’t hide emotions from yourself

To suffer, to care for, and to feel
‘Cause you can’t help
But be human
And feel joy, pride, excitement

That’s what life offers you

A chance
A dream
A gift, perhaps

This is about you, and you, and
Everyone else standing here
On this Earth
Just doing what we all do

Being Human

“That’ll do, Heart, That’ll do”


Ever since I was a child I have had this instinctive urge for expansion and growth. To me, the function and duty of a quality human being is the sincere and honest development of one's potential.
-Bruce Lee,
