What I would give

What I would give
to be a real human boy
the automation I have become
is full of lust for just one

to feel something again
to release all held within
to fear to cry to love
to imagine beyond the lines

What I would give
to be a real human boy
full of fear and loathe
to lie to cheat to steal

to feel something again
to hold it all within
of old age  to quicken
of death and taxes to spend

What I would give
to be a real human boy again
broken and penniless
but full of hope and piss

to feel even the fear
that comes with loss and tears
to dare take a step
that will shave off so many years

What I would give
to be a real human boy again…
