To Be human
Burn it, tear it down, smash it all,
throw bricks, set fires,
leave nothing standing
I am not a Grecian statue,
topple the dais you've set me on.
I am not a guiding flame,
You cannot caress fire
or make love to stone.
I am crass, I am human
I will destroy the images in your mind
that makes you think I'm special
Humans make love
not art or spirits
Remove the chains you've placed on me,
this hateful prison of the mind.
I will leave nothing left to worship
and so end my slavery
tears won't bring back what never was.
What never was, a mocking dream.
It is more than enough to be human
with lust, desire, weakness, and strength
all in equal measure
don't just stand there with your mouth open,
rip my cloths off and let me show you
what it means to be human
