I am not homeless.

I am not violent or unstable.

I don't smell bad.

I didn't drop out of school.

I was not abused or molested.

I don't carry a sign that says the end is near.

I don't ahve a 'look'.

I don't yell at strangers.

I don't wear dirty clothes.

I am not an alcoholic.

I don't feel shame.

I don't want your pity.

I did not ask for this nor do I deserve it.

Oops…they did it again
