Just a few things that people ask everyday.
Please let my voice be heard
Please stop making fun of me
Please stop hitting me
Mother, please protect me
Father, please tell me you love me
Mom and dad, please don't fight in front of me
Everyone, please stop pressuring me to lose my virginity
Teacher, please don't give up on me
Please don't judge me for being gay or the color of my skin
Please stop making cruel comments on my body
Please stop me from cutting
Please stop me from killing myself
Please take the drugs away from me
Please accept the fact that we are in love
Please understand that eighteen is still very young
Please put an end to teen pregnancy
Please put an end to babies born with health problems
Please put an end to discrimination
Please put an end to abuse, neglect and violence
Please accept me for who I am
Please hug me when I am hurting
Please make sure every child has an safe and loving home
I could go on forever
But please respect my few request.
