Special Rights

underdarkness's picture

I want to be accepted as a human being... just for who I am.
Is that a Special right?

I want to be able to hold the hand of the one I love and not feel disgust from those around me.
Is that a Special right?

I want to live a life doing all the little daily things you do and not be shunned or hated.
Is that a Special right?

I want to be around children and not be mistrusted
Is that a Special right?

I want to live my life in peace and not fear for my safety
Is that a Special right?

I want to live with the one I love
Is that a Special right?

I want to worship God in the church of my choice
Is that a Special right?

I just want to be me
Is that a Special right?

Yes, they are special rights... because I don't have them.

I like this writing. I don't know if you're calling it a poem, a song or just a piece of writing, but I like it. And I feel the same way.
~Thank you for the memories, a keepsake in my heart.

I really like this. I'm thinking of printing it out and posting it up at my old high school's bulletin board before I go back to college . . .

Whoa, whoa, don't give me credit! I didn't write this, I just found it and really liked it. Credit goes to Jim Swanson.
