I AM...Human

I AM HUMAN

I AM CAPABLE OF WRONG

BUT I AM ALSO CAPABLE OF BEING RIGHT

THERE ARE TIMES WHEN I FEEL AS THOUGH I AM

A BLANKET THAT DOES NOT KEEP YOU WARM

THERE ARE OTHER TIMES THAT I FEEL LIKE A MELODY

TO A LOVE SONG

 

I AM HUMAN

BUT DOES THE WORLD SEE

EVERYTHING I AM OR EVERYTHING I WANT TO BE

LIFE'S CIRCUMSTANCES CAN THROW YOU FOR A LOOP

MAKING YOU FEEL LIKE A PRESSURED BASKET BALL PLAYER

AIMING FOR THE HOOP

 

I AM HUMAN

SO MAYBE I'LL TRY

TO LIVE A GOOD LIFE

AND SHOOT FOR THE SKY

TO REACH FOR STARS 

IS A TRUE GOAL OF MINE

TO LIVE A LAVISH LIFE

BE FIRST IN LINE

BUT EVEN IF I CANNOT

I WON'T BE ABLE TO SAY THAT I DIDN'T TRY

FOR A HUMAN IS WHAT I WILL BE

UNTIL THE DAY THAT I DIE
