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!

I don't mind, although I would have preferred it if you'd asked me before you did it.

That said, I really enjoyed listening to what you did with my work; really great job! Do you mind if I put a link to it in my next journal? :)

You're right, I probably should have asked, sorry. Feel free to use it as you want, though. Let me know if you'd like me to do this again for anything else or in a different way.

Empty prayers, and honest pseudonyms.

That was the most beautiful utilization of counter-phrasing that I have read in a while. I love the philosophical almost objective perspective you are able to convey. You almost have an omniscient vision on humanity where you uncover all the brutal-beauty of the human condition. It reminds me so much of a song by tool called "right in two". Maynard (the singer) says: "angels on the sideline/baffled and confused/father blessed them all with reason/now they're all confused/don't these talking monkeys know that Eden has enough to go around?"

you sound like the angel on the sideline. Excellent job! it was a very enjoyable read!

Evil is within all of us and Lucifer plants the seed of sin within every human. Nobody is exempt from this. Depending on our actions, that seed of evil may shrivel & shrink, or it can expand its roots of evil inside us. But no matter what it always stays inside the soul until death.

I think there's a bit of bad in everyone, just as there is a bit of good. Everyone has the capacity to be bad, just as everyone has the capacity to be good. It's up to the individual person.

  This is quite an interesting one. I've truly never seen a poem this eye-catching and this is by far one of the best poems I've read so far. A true work of art, in my opinion. Great work. Clap
