Humans are cruel.
Humans are killers.
Before guns it was knives
Before that it was stones
Invasions, burning homes,
Stealing lives and loves
Releasing crows and
Slaughtering doves.

Humans are good.
Humans are kind.
They live, love and laugh
They have the gift of hope
Helping them all to cope
Through evil human things
Sowing seeds and
Sewing angel wings.

Humans are strange.
Humans are incomplete.
Punches to kisses to games
Anger to love to insanity
Tragedy to crystal clarity
Whirlwinds of empty whims
Empty prayers and
Honest pseudonyms.

Humans are living.
Humans are dying.
Ashes to ashes, soul to Hell
Or perhaps to Heaven
No human can really tell
If even either is real.

There are no creatures more Universal than humans. We are everything, and we are nothing.

In the beginning, Man was made. But Man was too perfect, and so... had to be executed.

Upon Man was placed a limit, and his abilities reduced to ash, so as not to pose the threat of replacing God.

And then the unholy spoiled us further. So here we are... on the brink of life, or death.

This poem is amazing, like all other of your poems, but what makes this special is the way you express both the positives and negatives of humanity, which is something poets rarely do! Wonderful once again!
