I don't know if you guys know this, but April is child abuse prevention month. I absolutely hate child abusers! This is my way to spread the word. (And Booksie and my iPad better let me format is right!)

I Am Human

 

I am cold.

 

I am the ice princess

Who rules the halls.

I never look up,

And I'm never seen smiling.

When detected, my presence

Freezes everything.

 

I am stone.

 

My face is set in rock.

I am stiff as a statue.

I know I have

A hard exterior,

But I only made it 

So I wouldn't crack.

 

I am glass.

 

I could shatter at any moment.

Your mean words and your strange stares

Put me on the brink

Of breaking.

 

I am flesh.

 

My body bruises,

And my bones break.

I'm just like everyone else.

But please don't try to prove my point!

I get enough scars

At home.

 

I am human.

 

Face it people, 

You don't have to like it.

I am one of you.

 

I have a brain that works,

Eyes that see,

Ears that hear,

And tears

That sometimes fall.

 

And if you look deep enough,

I swear,

I have a beating heart

Hidden somewhere.
