Am i not human?

Am i not human?

A Poem by Charlotte Finley

If you are human,
Can't i be to?
If you can see your love,
then why cant i?

Is it not human,
That i feel the pain of your hand,
on my check.
While they only feel it shaking their own?

Is it not human,
That i am woken,
in middle of night,
to clean your child's mess?

Is it not human,
that i watch you spend money,
while i, 
Have non

That i work day and night,
to support my family.

That when i not work,
I wish for their warm embrace.
As yours give you,
To be able to give them,
the toys you give.

To be able to throw away my money.
And earn it back with in the hour.

Does this not make me human?
