Foreign Terrestrials


We speak the same language
...But...
Interpret different nuances

And our expressions seem related
...Except...
They are foreign and divergent

The manner of our stride is similar
...However...
Our Body language lacks connection

And we laugh, and we hurt, and we cry
...Alas...
Adapted to alternative wavelengths

There is something that makes us human
Unfortunately
Nature constructed us to be Foreign Terrestrials

But that's o.k.
Because I have a dictionary
