to be human


i am not a beast

i am not genderless

i am not invincible

i am not a victim

i am not innocent

i am not perfect

i am not alone


i am a holy breath

i am engendered

i am vulnerable

i am an overcomer

i am forgiven

i am in process

i am connected


Linking to dVerse Poets pub…cheers!

    The contrasts works so well… so many things we are not as humans…
