What a lie,
what a fallacy,
you can't deny,
you're not perfect and you never will be.
But I wouldn't want you any other way,
if you were perfect, I wouldn't want you to stay.
We're Human, the two of us,
every last person has mistakes.
Those who say "I'm pure!" are fake.
Or they haven't sullied their perfection just yet.
I want you to know, you don't have to pretend.
We're all cruel and awful and sick in the end.
Because again, we're only Human.
If you can admit it you're half way there.
Purity's a lie and it doesn't make you more fair.
But look at you, listen to you, you're great as you are.
We argue, so what? It's simply Human.
I still like you and I don't hate you for such a reason.
Because I'm only the same as you,
they're only the same as me
and all in this transient virtue,
that they won't hurt us or anybody.
We might all swear it as things are now
but who knows where we'll be and what excuse we'll throw.
What your friends say to you, to me, that's true.
But then you look at what they say
and then what they actually go and do.
They didn't mean it but loyal they failed to stay.
I simply use this as a point and I want to stress,
there's no one I condemn for a reason like this.
I love it, that's why I don't hate them.
It's not just the betrayal I love either.
The ugliness, the hatred, the lies; building an ultimatum.
Teaching me I'm not the only human, not the only failure.
Because there's no perfection amongst our ranks.
It's that which makes us beautiful, special and without thanks.
I've written a poem similar to this but the message is important enough for multiple mentions.
