Get Rid Of The Advertisements

My Hero
 



JUST trying to do my best can prove a challenge.
'WALK', says the traffic light and so I crawl.
BESIDE my wheelchair, thank the Lord , you're walking.
ME ? I cannot stand, let alone stand tall.
AND if I do not make it o'er the crossing,
BE a pal, my pretend traffic cop,
MY hero, rescuing the fragile 'damsel'.
FRIEND indeed, hold up the sign, they'll stop!



Quote: Albert Camus


Yes, finally the wheelchair they predicted for me is a reality...36 years later.
