Proof That We Are Human - Poem by vanessa feliciano

Sometimes we may forget
that we too are human
sometimes we may forget
that we walk as creatures on this land
with things like power and money
who can take the blame
With feeling so almighty
with minds clouded by fame
who can say who's fault it is
for overlooking who we are
whose to blame for ignoring our emotions
until we've gone to far?
We may forget at times
what we should always remember
proof of our existence
palpable as cold december
with things like fear and hate
all of a sudden we belong
with things like love and war
we realize right from wrong
to feel compassion for a person
or a fear unlike no other
to realize we have family
brothers, sisters, mothers
is to realize we are human
and we have a common weakness
to say we've forgotten our place
is something i must digress
weather we have evolved
or were made from the heavens power
Fear, hate, love,
are a shared downfall of ours
but helps us never to forget
as we follow our lives through
that we live on earth around others
we are human this is proof.
