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.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
