Only Human


Besides this huge constitution of flesh, bones and fat,
Have you ever felt so small that you could crawl beneath the bed and be lost forever?

Without even a single bruise on your body,
Have you ever felt like you were trampled on by a truck?

Have you ever felt so worthless,
That you could sell your soul for free?

Even after bathing with disinfectant,
Have you felt so dirty as if you tumbled in hatred?
And smelled like you were drenched in guilt.

Have you felt flightless, with your wings intact?

Have you ever felt hungry even with your stomach full of thoughts?
And starved yourself of love even though it was served on a plate for you.

Have you ever felt claustrophobic in an open playground,
Have you ever felt lonely amidst a crowd of loved ones?

If you have,
Its only human, my friend
Only human.
