I am a human too

Nyasha Majawa

I feel everything you feel, I am human too.

You see my disability
I see my ability
I feel what you feel too;
Love and hate
Because am not different from you,
I am human too.

You call me different names
BUT I have a name
Why not use that one?
Am I any different from you?
I am human too.

You shutter my dreams
You label me mentally retarded
I just don’t comprehend things as you do
That makes me no different from you;
I am human too.

I eat, sleep and think
I have dreams
I hope and despair
I feel everything you feel
I am human too.
