PROMPT: Open Prompt

4
You go where I can not
You travel where I can not follow
So I ask
Am I human?

I have these hands
These hands that shape
I have these bones
These bones that ache
So again I ask
Am I human?

I have a stomach
a liver
a heart

But heart
is more complex than
mere arteries
mere valves
So again I ask
Am I human?

I have nerves
veins
a mind

But mind
is more complex than
mere neurons
mere transmitters
So again I ask
Am I human?

They say human is
heart
mind
soul

But I do not know
if I have one of those
So again I ask
Am I human?
