You are not me, I am not you

You can see the rain

Falling out of my eyes

You can feel the pain

Pregnant with my cries

But you go your way

To give thanks on Sunday

That you are not me.

I am the homeless,

Who sleeps under a roof of stars

I am the blameless,

Who sighs silently behind bars

I am the orphan child,

Who lives like an animal in the wild

When I meet you

I ask why I am not you.

But you should not be me

Before you can see me

I am not invisible

Fully human as you are,


But, more blind

Than a bat

You do not mind.
