I am humanity
I am broken,
tiny shards of my being poke holes in each other.
I am open,
shiny holes of nothingness beckon curious passers-by.
I am bruised,
lines and patches draw maps of mayhem under my skin.
I am used,
mines extract the prized valuables within my soul.
I am clutching, grasping,
for crisp, pure, freedom air,
that was once for all to share.
Even in my brokenness, indeed I have purpose:
I am a crooked crutch,
I am the coming-apart glue,
I am the dial-up connection between me and you, you and you.
I am the used, the broken open and bruised;
broken open to welcome
the reality, the news;
yours, please, to choose.
Day in, day out,
rise to the rooftop to proclaim and shout!
I am new, I am free!
I am you, I am me!
Written in delight upon my face:
please welcome me!
I am the human race.
