The poet: we are not monsters

We are not monsters

We are not monsters
We are not beasts
We are not aliens from an abyss
We are like the stars in the sky
We glitter at our given hour
We do not make the rules but the rules but they are ours to change
We are not monsters
We just seek delight
And fading are our lights
When the candle of life is quenched

In the journey of life we are travelers
Drinking from the fountain of hope
Satisfying our hunger with the fruits from the trees of success

We are not monsters
Yes, We hold swords and charge in a battle
Killing ourselves
But does that makes us monsters

No!!!!!

We are just humans
But we lack humanity
And so the calamity is driving us to insanity

We are not monsters
We are like the leaves on trees
Whether in the winters
Or summers.
We will one day fall

We are not monsters
We are not a beast

Just a bunch of travelers in a world where nothing is for free.
