Let Me Have... - Poem by Ashley Olson

I wanna live
But not this life
Let me eat
Just not that food
Let me talk
But my own language
I wanna read
Just not that book
Let me have strength
So I can fight
Let me have feelings
Just dont let them show
Show me the light
So I can see
Let me have hands
So that I could feel
Let me have feet
So that I could walk
Show me the way
so that I could follow
If life is hard
Let me die easy
