A Plea for Empathy

Like You

perhaps you have forgotten
or maybe never knew
although we look quite different
I’m very much like you

I scream and dream and scheme
like you
I make mistakes and my heart breaks
like you
I hurt and work and smirk
like you
I cry and sigh and die
like you

please remember
hatred is selfish
we share the stars
so make a wish

like me
