We are human

"We are human, 

therefore we are vile, 

disgusting creatures. 

We are human, 

We hate, 

We kill, 

and slander for 

Ridiculous causes. 

We are human, 

Self-absorbed, and 

Unashamed of the harm 

We cause. 

However there is a flip side. 

Although human, we can be 


We can learn to be the opposite

of has been predetermined from the 

Very beginning. 

We can be kind. 

We can change. 

We can be different 

From what is fated. 

I will not hate. 

I will not murder. 

I will not slander."
