My own species is making me feel like an alien.
I may have to pull in, tune out and hide in my shell.
My nature friends may be pesky eating my flowers and trash,
but I can forgive them. They are just trying to survive.
Who am I to hoard yummy trash and delicious flowers and all this space?
Humans will not get my forgiveness for their hateful behavior.
So I will be sharing all my nonhuman friends today.
They make me smile.
They make me laugh.
They keep me company.
They warm my heart.
I am thankful for them.
I will protect them.
Because I love them.
