I started the same as everyone else:
small- innocent - carefree.
I was the youngest of three,
yet that was not who they wanted me to be…
Cursed words paraded my developing mind:
“stop breathing”- “go away” - “no one likes you”.
“What did it all mean” I proclaimed, turning blue.
But I knew no matter what, I had to pull through.
Through pain and misery, rose the man I am today:
compassionate - selfless - kind.
For I wish to eliminate pain and suffering that has taken bind
of so many helpless souls, randomly assigned.
Some things never change at all:
I am still small.
Yet my heart has grown to the size of a blimp,
Therefore, I am a giant shrimp.
