Only Human

By Victor Ogan:

I think what I don’t want to think
I feel what I don’t want to feel
I desire what I don’t want to desire
I’ve done what I didn’t want do
Every second, minute and hour is a new me
Changing like a chameleon
I’ve made bad decisions
That doesn’t make me bad
I’ve done lesser good
But I’m not a saint
I’m only human
Don’t make me feel less
I’m only human
Don’t paint me as a monster
No one’s perfect, so don’t ask it from me
I don’t want to live up to your dreams
Cause apart from you calling me good, there’s no gain
I was never misled cause I have no dog chains on my collar
You don’t know me, the tears I’ve shed, the fears I’ve felt
The heat in my head, the churnings in my stomach, the pain on my skin,
Unable to get out of bed, afraid of each passing day
So how dare you judge me?
I’m only human
Don’t make me feel less
I’m only human
Don’t paint me as a monster
No one’s perfect, so don’t ask it from me
I’m not perfect, I’ll never be
But if perfection is what you desperately desire
Then please by all means build yourself a robot
But it won’t be perfect too.
