I Am Just Like You by Kevin Siervo

I AM JUST LIKE YOU

by Kevin Siervo

I

I am just like you

Fragile, weak and frantic

I could make mistakes, commit sins

and destroy things

II

I am just like you

Cold, stubborn, arrogant

I might speak too harsh

Care too little and

won’t even dare to listen

III

I am just like you

Clumsy, liar and hypocrite

I could tell the opposite,

mindtwist, or worse could even betray you

IV

I am just like you

Brute, dominant, selfish

I might criticize you, act superior and

do things my way without contemplation

V

I am just like you

Assertive, ambitious and insecure

I could want all things,

leave nothing for you

and take much as I can

VI

I am just like you

Afraid, scared and ashamed

To show these sides I have

You might hate me or judge me

V

I am just like you

And we share the same miseries

Human as we are

No one’s perfect and we all are.
