Human

by Skyler

 

the human will walk without thinking
and think without walking
the human will forget all of the secrets
that they were told
the human is lost
amongst his own species
the human cries for the dead
but will soon die anyways
the human needs help
but is too scared to ask
the human has a reputation
that needs to impress
the human is a liar
in his actions and words
the human is a human
even if he doesn't want to be
