Human

hello, my name is Human
i am a product of flesh and bone
hello, my name is Human
i live in a green and blue biome

hello, my name is Human
and i’m not quite sure why i exist
i’ll spend the rest of eternity
trying to define the meaning of bliss

hello, my name is Human
and what a funny creature to be
i have dominated everything
from the land to the sea

hello, my name is Human
and every generation i forget my past
i forget the dancing paintings
on the cave walls that have last-

-ed through the eons
though we’ve only been here for a wink
we’ve already destroyed most the environment
and are starting to sink

hello, my name is Human
i prefer to think of myself as divine creation
i fight tooth and nail with my brethren
to create a united nation

hello, my name is Human
and creation is in my soul
tell me what to write
and instead i will draw

hello, my name is Human
and when we cease to exist
our remains will litter the planet
until it joins the black abyss

hello, my name is Human
and i have got a soul
i need to remember my roots
and return to the world of old

hello, my name is Creature
and i am one with the forest that surrounds
i dance and i sing
and my energy is all around

hello, our name is Human
and we are a collective few
we forgot our destruction
and dove back to our roots

hello, our name is Human
and we are part of the divine
we sing with the canary
and burrow with the porcupine

hello, our name is Life
and together we sing
we are happy being One
and in tune with everything

hello
