Today’s prompt: Steps to Build a Human Being

Sugar, spice and everything nice,
Were the ingredients Professor tried to use to create his “perfect little girls”,
But in today’s unflinching, unapologetic, brutal world,
“Perfect” is a misnomer for a human being.

Instead,
Insert a little emotion,
A little madness: a quirk that makes them unique,
Motivation:
For when they feel the embers of their flame dying

Insert in them acceptance and empathy,
And humility: to mean they are sorry when they say the empty word repeatedly,
S-O-R-R-Y.

Instill in them the ability to understand,
The willingness to learn,
And a ridiculous sense of humour,
For in bleak times, the sound of laughter will guide them back to sure.

Lastly,
Tell them to love unconditionally and be stupid,
But don’t explain why:
For only experience will teach them survival.

Let me know what you think!
