I AM THE SAME.

Do not shun me for I am different
Shun me for I am the same.

I am the same as the man who destroyed the world
I am the same as the guy driving drunk who killed your daughter
I am the same as the men who brought down three buildings
I am the same as the man raping women for fun
I am the same as the woman getting raped for money
I am the same as the man who climbed in your window and stole all the money
I am the same as the group who set fire to your neighbors house
I am the same as the girl out on the streets selling drugs because she can’t get a job
I am the same as the gang who vandalized your neighborhood
I am the same as the man who beat you and your children
I am the same as the ladies who sold out people because they were a different color
I am the same as the person who stole your identity and used it to buy drugs
I am the same as the guys who kidnapped your daughter just for some money
I am the same as the company who betrayed their country just for some drugs
I am the same.

I am human.
