  • I am an object
    I am a tool
    I am a toy
    I am a weapon
    I am a treat

    What do you see when you look at me?

    I am not stupid as you think or dangerous as you imagine

    I am a human being like you

    I have a heart, emotions, aspirations and dreams

    I have a family that loves and cares about me

    My life matters

    My existence makes a difference in the world.

    Dedicated to my little brother who is 16 years going 17.
