Walk all over me.
Treat me like dirt.
Because all in all those things will not hurt.
Step on me, but be careful I may hurt you.
But it's not something I mean to do.
I only hurt you when I'm not taken care of, and then I may hurt the people you love.
You see me every day and take me for granted.
I come in all shapes and sizes and can even be painted.
It's easy to get stains all over me.
Some people actually like it once they see.
I can be really heavy or light as a feather.
And sometimes can't survive the harsh, wet weather.
But most importantly of all I keep you safe and dry.
As long as I am taken care of properly I won't die.
I can live for a long time - outlive even you.
Even after I'm dead that's one of the many things I can do.
People use me when I'm alive and use me when I'm dead.
And use me when they are alive and when they are dead too.
I come in handy with all kinds of neat stuff.
But you can burn me badly with one single puff.
What Am I?
