Just Like Everybody Else

Do you see me
Walking down the street
I don’t look any different
You would never know

I have epilepsy
Or Aspergers
Bipolar or Cancer
RA or Fibro
I’m gay or lesbian
or painfully afraid of something

Can’t tell when we chat?
me either you
what doesn’t the world know about you

Why should it matter
when the truth comes out
that I’m one of the hidden

I’m human
you too?  isn’t that neat
we are more alike
than you might realize
than you might like
I hurt, I cry, I dream, I love to nap, I am mostly water
just like you
take my hand and be my friend.
