Burns Not Scars!

May 22, 2013
Even though I may be burned,
I am still human,
I have feelings,
I have worth,
I have dreams,

I want to make a difference,
I want to make a change,
So no I don't want your surgeries
I want to stay the same,

I may be burned on 90% of my body,
But I am still beautiful,
I love to help the healing foundation,
It's just the way I am,

I have burns,
But they are just scars,
I love to be myself,
Burns not scars.
