What It Means To Be Human

I want to honestly smile
To show my laughter lines
To make them stretch and widen
Beyond any confines

I want to solemnly weep
To wear angst as my guise
To have sweet salty teardrops
Escape these arid eyes

I want to shriek and scream
To howl sharp and loud
To hear my voice break silence
Tear off this defensive shroud

I want to release these inhibitions
To live without my fear
To crack this stolid composure
So I can be sincere

I want to be utterly free
To lose all sense of control
To know what it means to be human
To live with heart and soul
