By Tylia L. Flores

Please don’t define who I am,


Just because you see my shadow,


made out of a chair built behind me,


and the wheels on the side of it,


instead, define me by  my abilities,

instead of the shadow, you see,


cause that shadow isn’t all that I’m made out of,

I’m made out of heart bones, and lungs, 

just like you, 

so please don’t judge me, 

based on your reflection that you see 

cause behind that shadow there’s a human 

who is just like you,

Just trying to adapt to society,

But in a different way,  

so please don’t judge me, 

Based on the shadow you see, 

and the Reflections that the sidewalk brings, 

cause I’m just like anyone else
