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.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
