If I am not human... by Dana Rettig Empty
PostSubject: If I am not human... by Dana Rettig   If I am not human... by Dana Rettig EmptySun Jun 15, 2008 12:33 pm

Am I not a person with a heart that beats?
Am I not a person with a pint of blood that bleeds?
Am I not a person who cries with sorrow?
Am I not a person who does not think about tomorrow?

If I am not human, then what am I?

Am I not a person who feels pain when depressed?
Am I not worthy of receiving the best?
Am I not a person who wonders what life is about?
Am I not a person who tries hard not to go the other route?

If I am not human, then what am I?

Am I wrong for falling in love with someone who does not love me back?
Am I wrong for trying to keep my head in tact?
Am I wrong for expressing my pain through my work?
Am I wrong for being nice instead of being a jerk?

If I am not human, then what am I?

Am I wrong for reaching out to others when times get rough?
Am I wrong for showing others love?
Am I wrong for constantly forgiving those who hurt me?
Finally, am I wrong for submitting to a man who does not deserve me?

If I am not human, then what am I?
I don't know; you tell me.

It sounds like a painful journey. Poignant, in fact.
