Flesh and Blood

by P. Johnson

My blood bleeds red
the same as you
and I cry tears
just like you do.
I feel feelings like loss and pain.
Sometimes I hurt.We are both the same.
I am heart and soul.
I am flesh and blood
not air, or water.
Not stone or wood.
We are not so different.Both blood and flesh.
Sometimes I fail like all the rest.
I get angry just like you do.
I've lost control, and so have you.
I've lied and cheated. I've hurt and used,
but just remember... You've done things too.
So before judging me, you and all the rest
should keep in mind that
you are blood
and you are flesh.
