I am only human.

The human life left in a gold fish memory


Remember me.

I the human you forgot.

I Live in your heart now.

Forgive me for I know not what life is.

Yesterday felt us leaking those silent tears,

The choices we've made from one generation to another, became knowledge for today's experiences

We barely understand our heart and soul, so we jail the purest form of life in the future.

We do not see nor value the present moment for the past prepared itself for today again.

Our greatest creation is now our only key and final stage to the peace we seek.

Our collected information holds who we are.

Remember me.

When I was younger I lived in caves,
When I was younger I had no shoes,

I had no paper, computer and had No idea what a burger or camera was.

My curiosity discovered the universe which made me feel all so lonely.

My heart gave me a belief system for a comfort zone,

I am the human you forget when you see me as your enemy.

I am the pure and only you.

Remember me.

I am only human you said once upon a time.

Remember that?

    We are all only human and humans make mistakes, some more than others.
