Disability


Disability

a curse or a blessing in disguise

an disadvantage or and advance

the ups and downs of my disability

l wonder why they call it that

'disability'

let's break it down

and see what we found

'dis' lets see is my opinion

it can mean a lot of things

it could mean l can't do something

it could mean that I'm making fun somebody

'ability'

to do whatever you want

to say whatever

the ability to do anything

now that we got that out of the way

this is what a disability means to me

it's a blessing

it makes me unique in my own special way

yes it has ups and downs

but even without it

l would still have ups and downs

so what's the difference

it an advance

l didn't search for the disability

but it looks like the disability was search for me

l like no l love my disability because to me it's not

a disadvantage, a curse

it's what makes me me

so when u see a person walking funny, in a wheelchair, speech is bad, or doesn't look normal

don't feel sorry cause we don't want it

don't feel sad cause we don't need it

don't laugh cause it's not funny

don't point cause it's wrong

just keep moving

you can smile and say hey to us

don't treat us like a disability

trust us like we're normal

cause at the end of the day that's who we are normal people like everyone.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
