You’re Human

~Hey, thereee! It’s my blog’s first birthday! Yup, INKSOAKEDSOUL IS OFFICIALLY A ONE-YEAR-OLD INFANT NOW WOHOOO! Hehehe, sorry got carried away in excitement.

Thank you all, for staying by my side and supporting me as I’ve grown through this year. To celebrate my blog’s birthday, I have two compositions coming your way, both of them very meaningful for me. I hope you enjoy! =)



You’re Human

You’re not a genie in a lamp.
You can’t grant my three wishes come true.
No, you weren’t trapped in that little vessel,
And I can see that your skin isn’t blue.

You’re not a mermaid from the waters.
You don’t grow feet when you come out on land.
Oh, your tears don’t turn to pearls,
And you don’t live in castles made out of sand.

You’re not a vampire of the night,
The sun doesn’t burn your skin.
No, you don’t survive on the taste of blood,
And you don’t need an invitation to come in.

You’re not a werewolf of the full moon.
Met with danger, you don’t growl.
No, you’re no Alpha or Beta, not part of a pack.
The moonlight doesn’t make you howl.

You are not part of a fiction,
A beautiful surreal fantasy.
No, you are not perfect, you have flaws,
Because you don’t live in imagination but reality.

Your blood is red and you’ll bleed when cut open.
Oh, your bones can snap under pressure.
Your human heart is fragile and will end up broken.
Little trivial things can give you pleasure.

But yes,
Yes, you seem weak.
Yet you still exist, smile and breathe.
For you are human, and that in itself is special.
You don’t need to prove your worth to become much better.

You are worth far more,
Than the picture of yourself in your head,
Whether it’s of a warrior with rebellion in mind,
Or a prince or princess on a royal bed.

You’re human,
You’re human so embrace it, and remember what I’ve said.
Live for what you love and cherish and someday,
Maybe someday,
Your story will be part of the several legends you’ve read.

  2. Dear M,
    First of all, happiest birthday to inksoakedsoul (I am still hyperventilating about the name)
    Its been a while, isn’t? I have been online for quite a while, life was busy giving me lemons and I was squeezing them.
    But more importantly, it feels amazing to read your writing after a long time. Reading these lines, I believe that you have grown and evolved as a writer and your sheer passion and evolution is delineated in this piece.
    This creation somehow displays a nostalgia of all the legends however, the theme of the poem was a solitary reason that pulled my heartstrings. It seems unbelievable to me to witness this growth in your writing. I absolutely adore the concluding lines. This poetry is brimming with such positive energy that all my cells and atoms in the cells are practically contracting and bubbling with energy (note: rough traces of hyperbole)
    A phenomenal piece of art.
    Enigma πŸ™‚ ❀
    PS: Tell me, what did I miss?

      It’s been a while yes! Time flies by super fast, right? I’ve been wondering where you were, but I know now.
      If life gives you too many lemons, toss some at someone else to lessen your burden, hehe xD
      You haven’t missed much from me ( though I did miss you =( ) because I’ve been busy squeezing life-lemons too. πŸ˜‚
