human

A fool
Makes his humanity an excuse
For animal behavior,
For base appetites.
“Human”–
Blood and bone
Spun into a reflection
Of the Divine–
A thought, a voice
Echoing back
The word of our Creator.
Don’t dare say “I’m only human”
And act the part of a Pig, a Rat, a Dog, a Snake…
Say rather “I am less than human.”
Our fragile bodies and willful souls
Make our kind unique–
A beauty, a fire, a force.
More powerful than angels,
More terrible than demons,
Human.
Nothing less.
