The Human Zoo

We are all living

in a human zoo,

a human zoo

of me and you.

 

We are all caught

in a human zoo,

and watched

from far,

and watched

from near,

and watched

in this cage

whose primal thread

is fear.

 

We are all dying

in a human zoo,

and from life

to death

we look,

through the bars,

from life

to death

we look

to the stars,

from birth

to the grave

we crave

for something new,

something true.

 

 

A human zoo

from birth

to death

that holds us

close,

and walls us off,

and there is

nothing beyond

but a cloud

in the sky,

filled with wishes

and dreams,

and quiet

existential screams.
