Why? You would know if I knew.
I am but a human. I fear. I believe. I hope. I dream.
I worry about the future. Yet, I look forward to it.
I yearn for new experiences. Yet, I cherish the ones I’ve had.
I worry about the effects of my actions. But, I still act in the only manner I ever would.
I ache for the touch of passion. I wait on words hanging onto visions.
I fake a smile. I force a laugh. I dance and play the part.
I hold grudges. I hate. I believe in kindness. I love.
I lay back, looking up at the universe. I aspire.
I dream of realms I could never visit. I am haunted by demons that do not exist.
I long for the glimpse of a winter sun. I seek for the caress of the summer breeze.
I am just a wave tossed in the ocean. I am just a vapour floating along the wind.
I am confident, filled with emotion, guided by reason, and driven by passion.
I am the only one with these thoughts. I am nothing like you.
I am but a human. I am alive. And today, I believe in hope.
