Do I like being human? The question is moot.
Sometimes I feel like Superman; sometimes I’m weak
With my grip on reality. Nevertheless,
I delight in the wonder that I may express
Without effort. There’s no sense in my feeling meek,
As my writing, at times, can seem rather astute.
But is this an illusion? It’s human, at least,
To believe I control things to mitigate fear.
I can make it my costume and face the stiff wind,
Then hope that my identity is not chagrined.
When it’s found I’m no hero, will my fans still cheer?
When in tune with my nature, is my fame increased?
If I learn how to manage my thinking and heart,
Then I know that my actions are taken care of.
If I can do all this, then I can stroll through hell,
And find it of scant interest, but no place to dwell.
Humans are possibilities to express love.
Thinking ‘I’m only human’ is not thinking smart.
