0040 All That I Am [04 May 1997]

All I am is human,
All I am is myself.
Why do you need beauty?
Why do you reject me?

Am I the human
So judged as ugly?
Why must I be thin?
Why must I have beautiful hair?

Am I the human
So known as cold?
Why must I be popular?
Why must I be a flirt?

Am I the human
To be called fat?
Why do you then eat the same as me?
Why do you judge me so?

Am I the human to
Be thrust into with harmful words?
Why do you name me names?
Why do you judge yourself better than I?

Am I the human
To be judged as different from yourself?
Why do you feel you can justify that?
Why do you love as I do?

You should not judge,
Those who breath the same air or is so similar to yourself?
All I am is myself,
All I am is human.
