Only human




Long ago in ancient times

a man was sent a star to find,

and down from where the heavens parted,

all could see a life had started,

on a new born human.


And through the years of growing strong,

he told us stories, right from wrong,

he said that we could find the way,

if we were prepared to pay,

the price of being human.


Sometimes when you're feeling down,

close your eyes and look around you,

then you'll see a new tomorrow,

maybe one without no sorrow,

maybe human.


Those of us who know the truth,

who've been to school we've read our books,

we've done some things we know are wrong,

but after all is said and done,

you know we're only human.
