I Am Human

I am human
A slave to uninvited clouds of emotion
A bearer of under-developed opinions
A disciple of ignorance that is shared by all.

I am human
A warrior of justice and equality
A messenger for good in the world
A ruthless voice, content with shouting alone.

I am human
A supporter of logic and understanding
An encourager of ideas
A sponge for information. 

I am a human
A being thirsty for acceptances and love
A cluster of atoms searching for personal meaning
A speck of courage. 

I am human
A fierce protector
A tireless supporter
A boundless lover of all. 

I am human
A blind and beating heart for humanity
A desperate candle attempting to remain lit in the most brutal storm
A whisper of flesh, bone, and ideas.

I am human.
