Count Me Out

It’s easy to be a number.
64 hundred killed.
11 thousand displaced.
9 million survived.

It’s easy to be a number.
Social security number.
Your paycheck.
Bills to be paid.

It’s easy to be a number.
Simply someone.
In the crowd.
Drowning out.

It’s not as easy to be human.
With a future,
and a story,
and choices to be made.

I am a human,
not just a number.
so please.
Don’t count me.
