You mock me,
But I am human too.
Underneath these layers of Coyote fur,
Solid red blood;
I have feelings.
I am not just a stereotype or a statistic–
I am so much more.
I live vivaciously.
I spend money on the essentials,
Food, shelter, and my jacket,
But most of all,
I want You to know that I am like you.
We are not so different You and I,
You wear Nike; I wear Adidas.
You wear Goodwill; I wear Canada Goose.
But we are more than the labels we choose to wear.
My label is just much more expensive than yours.
So please stop
