Let Me Be

let me be who I am.
I may not think the way you do.
I may not see the world as you see it.
after all I am still a person
just like you.
your cruel laughter makes you less
not me.

Do not shun me.
my illness is not contagious.
your mind will not
become like mine.
you cannot catch
my illness.
your fear just makes me lonely
and friendless.
I am lost in isolation.

Do not pity me.
I am not less than you.
For all my ills,
I am human and not
ashamed of who or what
I am.

So let me be.
For all my faults.
I am still a part
of He.
