I’ve felt it, that cold-hearted monster lurking within
When it once took over, as selfish and capable
I now stand between man and machine
To keep or replace my heart with an engine?
To pump metal limbs to work tirelessly
Discard the recesses of human weakness
In a steady road to earthly immortality
I am hesitant, despite the lack of care
Once this devil takes over my youth
Keeping that youth forever
Must I abandon these people
To be more than ordinary?
To live beyond life, free from their shackles?
Perhaps I am thinking too hard
Perhaps the answer is in front of me
But these eyes gaze far beyond
To the limits of humanity
I should just flex my bones
So that when the time comes
I won’t have to give up the warmth for freedom
For in this short life of uncertainties
I’m sure to break down when you break at my feet.
