Humans in Humanity

by Zythul

We are humans,
because that is all we know.
To deny our human side, is to deny our existence.
We have been encoded,
Encoded with the want or need,
the need to destroy all that is around ourselves,
Destroy all we did not create.

What humans do perserve is that need,
that need for chaos.

The wars,
the hunger,
the dieases.

All we, as humans, have to show.
Is our desire to destroy ourselves.
How ugly we as human are.
Yet we still thrive.

And I would not trade my humanity for anything

Cynical look at ourselves. I like the message but would like to see the punctuation cleaned up a bit. Good work... Reb-
