My name is both "offspring of God" and "offspring of man".

I am confused but noble, infected with hate and prejudice yet I possess the antidote for all these as well - a conscience.

I am torn apart by myth and doubt and faith and love and reason.

Although I have suffered immeasurably, my triumphs against all odds have been equally impressive.

I was blind but slowly, steadily I am finding the grace/ability to see.

I have attempted suicide many times - but in failing to die my weakness is revealed and so indicates that it was only a cry for help.

Even after I actually developed a weapon capable of completely killing myself, I was afraid to use it.

I'm angry and many times feel lost and alone but, truth be known, I don't want to die - I want to live.

I love - therefor I am.

I want to be well.

I really do.

I will live.

Love,

- the human

Question Adrift

This thread reminds me of the song 21st Century Schizoid Man by King Crimson.

The human wrote that song but will need to refresh the memory of this (flawed) cell in the human's mind via google.
