Human Beings

Human Beings

A Poem by WillaDanvers
"

When you think about it... human beings are weird things. We are a strange species.

"

Closed eyes and motionless body,

Drifting in stateless dreams, we choose,

A surface of comfort made in special,

Thin layers of fabric laid upon,

 

We make these choices, we need,

Turn off the brain, it needs to recharge,

Close those eyes, stop using muscles,

Turn on sleep mode, and for hours endure,

 

This state we are accustomed too,

From day one till day dot,

We practice the motion of sleep,

Because that is the societal norm,

 

Held inside thin glass, contained,

Floating on surface of earth,

Two different types,

We dare not treat as same,

 

A clear liquid, fulfilling our systems,

A clear liquid alone, in small doses,

A mass of blue and green,

Together bound holding immense colour,

 

Tasteless compared, yet so clear and refreshing,

A drop we ask, a mouthful we take,

Thirst we do, and survive we need,

The substance the fragile glass contains.

Wow...the poem is amazing. The word usage is very good and the feelings your poem makes me feel...damn!
Please, continue like that!

My favorite part:
Close those eyes, stop using muscles,
Turn on sleep mode, and for hours endure,

A wonderful poem. I agree. Human being. Hard to understand.
"We make these choices, we need,
Turn off the brain, it needs to recharge,
Close those eyes, stop using muscles,
Turn on sleep mode, and for hours endure, "
The above lines. Things we do and one day we forget who we were. Thank you my friend for sharing the amazing poetry.
