I Am Human

written by: Barbara Deraoui



I am a person

I am alive

I have feelings

I have needs

I am no different than another

I need love

I need care, a home, and sustenance

I want to walk free

To be able to live my life without pain or hurt

At times I am alone

Other times I am not

I am no different than another

I am human
