Human

What is the difference between
No
and
No, thank you?

How many times
do we have to be reminded of our imperfect condition until
we are comfortable enough to be human,
To be flawed?

Limitless thoughts and ideas and words make for
Limitless arguments and conflicts and offenses
But I know the difference between right and wrong
And I realize my brain is filled with black clouds and tendencies to fail

But if I knew the difference between
Being me and being someone else,
I would probably crawl back into my own skin at night,
Settle into my flaws,
Softly breathe into my failures
And keep going.
