Get Rid Of The Advertisements

I Am Not different
 
Image and video hosting by TinyPic


I shall overcome
These negative labels,
That other’s have put
On me
I shall show them
That I
Am more than a person
With a disability

I am a human being
I am just
Like you
I may look or act
A little different
Yes,
That is true

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


However,
I have a heart
That beats
Within
If you cut me
I bleed red
Just like you do

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


I have feelings
And I get hurt
And I cry real tears
Just like you do

I like to be called a person.
I Like to be called a,
Human Being too
I like to be called,
By my given name
Yes I do

I like to be called,
a friend.
If I can find
A friend in
You

Please,
Do not pity me,
For my problems,
admire me for how well,
I cope with them
Please,
Do not judge me
From the outside
Please look deep
Within

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Do not feel sad,
About my struggle
And the hell
That I have been through
Just treat me,
as human being
The same way I
Treat you

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Please do not pity me
I do not want that
From you
Please do not stare
At me
Like I am a freak
I am
A human being
Too

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Please do not point,
And stare at me
Say things,
That is unkind
Please,
Do not treat me
As though
I am not there
When you see me
With your own
Two eyes

Having a disability,
is never fair
But discrimination
By others,
will always be there

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Look beyond my disability
When you look at me
Look at my eyes
Look at my face
Look at my heart
That is beating
Within
Please,
Look at me
Like you would look
At a friend


Image and video hosting by TinyPic

None of us
Are perfect
Will all have
Disabilities
Some are just hidden
From sight
And
Some are seen
By all
