Inherently Human - Poem by Rebecca Dodgson
People are weapons.
Our DNA is more virus than human,
and I can't help but wonder if it hasn't rubbed off a little.
We pointlessly destroy each other,
under the guise that we don't know anything else.
And it only leads to more
The truth is that hurting people, that pointlessness,
is so inherently human,
that we blame anything but.
We act like this is just a reaction
these actions are like stepping stools
we use because we can't reach anything higher.
we act like we really are elevated,
like all that running got us somewhere,
but when we step down, we are NOTHING.
So we don't step down.
We add to the death and decay,
getting us higher and higher until we
ARE TOO AFRAID
to step down.
Which is so inherently human,
it makes me cry.
