Brittle Creatures

Ananya Thakur

Dubai, UAE

We’re mere humans
We’re brittle creatures
Hard yet easily broken
We come out spilling
Like honey from a honeycomb
When crushed and strained.
No, we aren’t weak
Just vulnerable
And benign
And that shouldn’t be
Considered tragic
It isn’t a flaw.
It is the only thing
That gives us
Our common identity
The only thing
That makes us seem
Human like we are.
