The fragility of being human

The fragility of being human

Blood, bones and breath of a life
The anatomy of all beings alive..
Yet, a four limbed animal is hailed king
A rather vulnerable one in the absolute terms..

Humanity, a concept so obscure
Supported by the pillars of civilizations..
And polished by philosophy and celebrated poetry
Is quite weak at the core and foundation..

A lone woman in a deserted street
An easy wickedness over drudgery..
The tests are many and victories few
True, a human is frail like a new born..
