Human Inhuman
LWalterowicz

A human
 1
an inhuman creature
 2
becomes when
 3
deprived of fears
 4
with no reasons for tears,
 5
makes no mistakes,
 6
perfect and flawless
 7
out of failure
 8
for ever remains;
 9
If never unhappy,
 10
not bothered by trouble,
 11
efficient in all actions
 12
confidence he gains,
 13
proud he becomes,
 14
uncompassionate he is.
 15
 
 
A human
 16
an inhuman creature
 17
becomes when
 18
come true
 19
all his fears,
 20
when he
 21
cried out
 22
all his tears,
 23
his life
 24
was a fate
 25
of failure,
 26
all his mistakes
 27
- cruelly serious
 28
lead him
 29
to plight
 30
cannot he endure;
 31
If for ever grievious,
 32
harmed by fate mischievious
 33
never found peace,
 34
becomes he sympathetic,
 35
yet humiliated
 36
- miserable he is.
 37
 
 
A human
 38
an inhuman creature
 39
becomes when
 40
he makes
 41
his life
 42
a deceitful projection;
 43
Stating untruth,
 44
conforms blindly
 45
without reflection
 46
- refuses to resist;
 47
honesty
 48
to him
 49
does not exist:
 50
cowardly he escapes
 51
to avoid the truth,
 52
afraid he is
 53
of the judgement
 54
of his peers;
 55
One who sought no truth
 56
the entire life,
 57
afraid of it,
 58
turning face from the light;
 59
One to whom a lie
 60
is just a lullaby
 61
for the consciousness,
 62
a lost wanderer he is.
 63
 
 
An inhuman creature
 64
a human
 65
becomes when
 66
he is aware.
 67
He does not fear
 68
to cry
 69
nor cower
 70
to fear;
 71
his imperfection
 72
can he admit,
 73
his weakness
 74
his strengths can bear;
 75
he does not conform
 76
nor conceal the truth
 77
when one is to be revealed.
 78
In pursuit of truth
 79
he self-improves,
 80
finds his goal
 81
and happiness;
 82
the enitre life
 83
he proves
 84
to be honest
 85
in all terms,
 86
a conscious unit he is.
