Ordinary Human - Poem by Albert Oktovianus

I don’t have a ring to rule them all
But a thirst for leadership still I have

I don’t have a dragon to ride on
But I still have the urge to protect the weak

I don’t have a black sleek car to drive
But I still tend to drive fast like a runaway

I don’t have a sword to pull out from a rock
But I still tend to slash away what I feel not necessary

I don’t have a red cape to show my symbol
But I still wear my dignity with equal pride

I don’t have a scar on my forehead to prove I can escape death
But I don’t want to, don’t need to, ‘coz I’m just Ordinary Human

I bleed, I cried, I laughed, I die…
