My Poems -Them

Them

Look at that

The riff raft

Their not as good as me

Their not like me

Their different

They know what it's like to be regarded as trash

Their use to it

They have adapted

They don’t care what I do to them

Others have much worse

They’re weak

They’re lesser

They’re broken,

and I shouldn’t fix them.

Look at me

A person

I am as good as you

I am like you

I am not different

You regard me as trash

But I am not trash

I have not adapted

I care what you do to me

Others have it worse,

but I still have it bad

I care

I don’t know if I’m strong enough

I have tough skin,

but cuts still hurt

I am not weak

I am not lesser

You shouldn’t have to fix me

Because I should never be broken

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on January 25, 2021:

Just be yourself.

Accept yourself.

Pay no attention to what others think.
