I am you


I am from the dry desertthe sands that dance in the windI am from the heat of the sunthat warms our heart at the time of warI am from the coldness of the winterthat settles in our hearts during tough timesJust because I'm a Muslim and and Afghan,doesn't mean I'm a terrorist or Taliban

I live like every other man
I feel like every other woman
I play like every other child
I talk like every other teen
I dress like every other girl
I joke like every other boy
I am like every other person
I am you



This poem was written in my freshman year in highschool to describe who I am and what I think myself as.
