Only Human

Only Human

A Poem by Skye

Though I am human, 

I am not above nature, 

whatever that may entail. 

I am not divine - 

simple child of the earth, 

whatever weight that holds 

to my feral soul within. 

On a whim, 

I will fly - I will fall. 

On a dare, 

I will swim - I will falter. 

Though fragile, 

I will stand my ground. 

A child with the will to be human.

either this poem or also the name you use on this site makes me think this piece of something in the same vein as native american culture... very earthy... is wayward also the right word to describe? I like it.. 100pnts!!

Thank you for your review :)
We poets often wander in a realm of thoughts and emotions that is apparently disconnected from the material world we live in. In that light, this poem with its simple and honest take on the fallible nature of humanity is engaging and refreshing. The lines "I will swim - I will falter", sound almost defiant in their proclamation of human imperfection. It is a very good poem. Wish some polishing, it can become great. But you do have potential. Well done!

I praise this poem because it's simply accepting the fact that you aren't better than anyone else, but just being you.

Sometimes, I forget my passion underneath the demands of life and want of perfection. Then there are those nights where everything is clear, and I can't help but write what I feel. I love meeting .. more..
