I am the most intelligent species on this planet. I have five senses to help me navigate through my world. I eat meat and vegetables. I could even eat my own species if I were hungry enough. I am incredibly creative, but I’m also tremendously destructive. I create, and I destroy. I am such a clever species that I may one day learn the secret of how the universe was created, yet at the same time, I can be the most ignorant being in the galaxy and indulge in every sort of brutality. I can be so self-aware that I illuminate the whole universe, yet because of my lack of awareness, I would destroy the whole universe if I had the power. I am a social being who likes to live among communities, but I often feel lonely in a crowd. What’s more, my soul sometimes breaks down, and I can even destroy my own community in such cases…

This is the double-edged sword that I am. I’m very happy one moment and in the pit of depression the next. I am full of love sometimes and possessed by anger at others. My eyes can look gentle while also viciously looking for blood. I step over others so I can be the best, yet I sometimes pause to help those who have fallen.

I am a being of contrasts from head to toe. This is why part of me is black and the other is white. I am never completely white or completely black. I construct huge temples dedicated to what I believe in, and I can send millions to their deaths in the name of these beliefs…

This is the kind of being I am…

I am human!

My only hope is to come to terms with what I am…
