Please Understand

Be patient, my friend, for
You do not understand
I'm lonely, afraid and
Need a helping hand.

Even though we are
Different and often
Disagree, can we live
Here together in peace
And harmony?

I am too thin, too tall,
Too quiet, too loud.
I limp, I'm clumsy and
Fearful of crowds.

I am not perfect, but this
I know, we're both
God's children and so
Please respect my humanity.
