Only Human

Only Human

A Poem by Lavi

Life is too short to be pretend.

I've seen many lives gone astray
Seen them leaning towards cliche
Their longing for something more had given away
Now I'll be on my way

Don't tell anyone that I'm gone
I don't wish to be found by false pleading
All these burdens can't just walk-on
Not when their hearts are still bleeding

I cannot return a hero
This is a battle only they can win
Let their victories rise up from zero
Ending their wars is not a sin

Life is too short to be pretend
We're only human in the end

We all are who we are, good, bad or indiffrrent, meaning they do not give a s**t about what happens to them or life. But we choose to be better
and live better and move on. Anyone can if they really want to in their hearts of hearts be free better and happy eventually with time and self effort to be better of course, i am on about. not stuck in a rut.

This is pretty heavy and I like heavy things. I saw many walk astray myself and I never understood why tbh. I just gave up on that wonder and putting myself out in the winds. People always lean towards something because they can't find the balance of life. Why do you say you will be on your way? Is it the same path or is it a pathfinding you? I call em crossroads broken bridges but they are all the same. It sounds like idk maybe there is no1 to call. No1 is a true hero and id never allow anyone to win not when it comes to something of depth. And life and feelings are no game. I always said I am not a machine don't think as one not controlled with fuels or electric Man gave that image screaming how many more can you do all that control making one out to be some fool and a slave. I said no more. I killed my health for a man to become rich while I sit being poor. I am happy all that matters:)
