poetry post: I Am — Somebody

I may be poor. But I am Somebody!
I may be young. But I am Somebody!
I may make a mistake. But I am Somebody!
I must be respected, protected, never rejected.
I am God’s child.
I am Somebody!

–by civil rights activist Rev. William Holmes Borders, Sr. (source: this Upworthy article)
