Are We Human? By: DeAnna Beland
Is there a reason why were all being pointed at
with the tips of slender fingers
and the points of noses raising at us
a sign of inteligence and unwanting.
were in a box for the longest time
duct- taped closed with no air to breathe
and when we finally get it open and we can run free
well, that will be the day.
we walk along the same as you.
same molecules and cells that make us human
but we dont get the same treatment
theres not a single reason why.
were zoo animals
caged up like a panther
the bars blocking us from the rest of the world
and everyone who lives in it.
they stare at us with terrified eyes
and disaproving glares
that is hard to believe were human at all.
Are we human?
