Humans That's What We Are


We love, we hate,
We shake hands, we shoot fist in range,
We smile, we frown,
We rain extolment, we put down,
We are neither angels nor demons,
Humans that's what we are.

We are kind, we are callous
We compliment, we curse,
We make up, we break up,
We hug, we assault,
We are neither cold nor hot,
Humans that's what we are.

We rise, we fall,
We succeed, we fail,
We try again, we accept the fate,
We cry, we sing melodious songs,
We are neither weak, nor strong,
Humans that's what we are.

Expect not always to see
The very good part of me,
For neither you nor I can live
A life without a blame,
We are either wrong or right,
Humans that's what we are.

There is only one you standing,
Let not our differences offend thee'
Our prey is misunderstanding'
Who often try to tear us apart'
We are neither light or darkness'
Humans that's what we are.

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
