I am not a file number, I am not a case I am neither a burden, nor disgrace I am a reflection, a shadow of you They say I am different, but I am one of you You gave me life, a name to belong You composed me like a beautiful song You touched my soul, gave me a gift of you I am not different, I am one of you because I belong to you!
