Being Human

The poem has been written to question the structures of social conduct that demand conformity and are utterly hostile to individuality. Written in a sarcastic tone, the poem lays bare the façade of what it is to be human and wonder
if there is any more to morality  than a social protocol. It’s exhausting.

The morality,

The forced behaviour against the natural fibre of your being

Only stressed time and again to put you in line,

To make you feel incompetent

Inadequate

Unfeeling

Even inhuman.

What is it to be human?

What is expected?

Isn’t it to be human to have anger?

Hatred?

Jealousy?

Vengefulness?


Human?


If that’s not human, what is?
