THEY THINK...BUT I AM

people judging people

is the inevitable

constantly making assumptions,

and baseless presumptions

we see each other in distorted images,

afflicted with ignorance and impaired vision

 

some claim I look mean

what a shame

that the compassion and tenderness

that boils within me

gets overlooked and unseen

 

i've always wanted fortune for others

wished well for every strangers

as if we shared mothers

"she think she's..."

"that girl maybe"

 

kill that noise

I am a pedestrian on the same earth

I am a creature underneath the same god

I am the holder of a heart and soul

I am composed of blood flesh and bone

I am Human
