It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default.
- J.K Rowling

Push it once

then a dozen times.

Buttons won't work,

I'm paying the price.


Hardware's jammed

screen's on the blink

My circuit board's damaged,

Now I can't think.


Limbs attached

by a thin thread of wire,

One small spark

and I've set myself on fire.


I am slowly dying

an immortal death.

I was never alive,

But I'm taking my final breath.


Was not made to have emotions

But I loved the world 'till day.

Now I'm leaving it behind,

but I'm not really going away.


I am different from my kind

not mere metal, glass and wires.

It is a blesing and a curse,

I will never fulfill my desires.


I am a machine with no heart

Which means I can never die,

But no-one really bothers to fix me

So why sit and try?


I'll take in all I can,

before my memory goes stark

Feel the wonders of the world,

Up untill my last spark.

The author's comments:

It's a dying robot. It had the fortune to feel emotions and the misfortune to be treated as a an emotionless machine. It was not as lucky as we are. I feel we take our positions as Humans for granted, many a times. I also acquired quite a bit of inspiration from the Pixar movie,'Wall-E'.
