I embraced that humanity we longed to eradicate,
even the dark ugly bits that fester up
in the untouched corners.
You’ve been patient and heard an old woman ramble for far too long,
but heed these words my dear,
humanity is not
in control of
us. Humanity is caught
in a tug-of-war between
life and death,
and often times death gets the upper hand.
And even though life know’s its going to lose
all the time,
it still hangs on tightly as if it has a chance at victory.
