I AM HUMAN

I am human.


I dance 
 
when I'm happy,
 
I cry 
 
when I'm sad.
All I want 
is to make sure my choices today
won't rise up and engulf me tomorrow as I drown
and wither away in the cold river of regret.
 
I
 
am small
While I watch the constellations above me
The stars and the scars  
Stitched throughout the handmade sea of life.
But though my soul can't fill up a room,
I am bigger than you've ever imagined
Because we are all radiant masterpieces 
and while the critics critique 
I won't let their words make me
weak.
I may stumble and stutter 
And trip over my self 
But I will protect my brothers and sisters
In some stupid way I'll help.
Because the most beautiful thing about us is how stupid we become for the ones we 
 
love.
 
Because 
 
you
 
 and I are human.
