To Be Human

To destroy is to be human,
we’d sell the sun to buy a candle;
to create is to be human,
we’d smelt the embers down to sand
and blow the glass to fiery orb,
casting our light up in the sky
as savior and penance to grand
human ideas that blighted the land,
if only there were enough time.
