I am human,
Born of a woman.
So happy to see the sunlight,
Pleased at the sight of moonlight.

Everything I met here,
Except from my younger ones.
Though life sometimes makes regret,
But I wish to live more.

I love berries,
I love juice.
Love to drink when I am thirsty,
Love to be daily full of food.

Everything that I met here,
I love to have to them.
Beautiful mansion, the flying jet.
The riches and other's men's respect.

I learnt that some men are dangerous,
So I wanna be secured.
I love to be counted among the beautiful ones,
And to hear my Heart saying well done.

I love to be loved by someone,
I love to be grouped among some people.
I love to share my pains with love ones,
I wanna believe I'm saved among some people.

I wanna believe in something,
Things that sweet my conscience.
I wanna be known with something,
That make feel that I'm the blessed.

I'm sometimes happy,
Don't know why things must sometimes go dotty.
Sometimes I feel like I'm flying,
Don't know why I sometimes see myself crawling.

I've control  over many things,
But not all if I may tell.
I've been happy about many deeds,
But there are some I deeply regrets.

I've been right to y'all,
But why are y'all now keep naming my wrongs.
I've received share from y'all,
I can now see different faces of rejection.

Two types of expression from the same face,
Why don't y'all remember my good deeds?
Why turneth thine face away?
Are these not those smiling cheeks?

Why did y'all love me as an angel?
Forgetting that I'm human being.
Expecting me to be always perfect,
Not expecting for once that my tongue should slip.

What are you doing to make me forgive myself?
The remembrance of death lies there.
My great grand parent are dead,
One day shall I be next.

Let me be happy about your love in my head,
To take my heart off my inevitable end.
To forget my unforgettable offence,
This is when I need you as my friend.

That I am human being,
The reason to be careful.
That's why you have to take core and deep thinking,
When there are people behind you shouting "hahoo"
