God given
we are man made
of lovely smiles
and steel plates
of resentment 
and melted thread
of screws 
and pencil lead.

we are man made
of method and madness
on crutches and bias
the light trys to get in
while the bone is still setting.

everything is bleeding 
and pumping inside of me 
at once alive and breathing for me
passed down 
and built in.
however shifty 
and broken.
your donated heart (previously opened)
keeps working.
it's man that is God given.
