Human by Numbers

Numbers I resist

Refusing to be one

Stuck on a list

Humanity gone


Cynical category

I am not

More to my story

Essence brought


Neither ethnicity

My only stamp

See my intricacy

You must understand


Easy to ignore

When I am unreal

More in store

If only you feel


Rise above

Blind perception

All be done

With deep reflection


You see me outside

An entity separate

In human disguise

Fearful and desperate


Look at me

Proud and strong

Know indeed

You are wrong

    A very fine example of authentic “resistance”.
