What is Disability

What is disability?

A state of mind

A place where people can be unkind

Where nature and nurture forget to communicate

Where one or other forgets to close the gate

And where paths divide

Unkind word chide

Many do not know the way

To the others kind of day

To see the hobbled body where boundaries abound

Shows how to make that friendship sound

There are other ways

To behold disabilities gaze

In the eyes and in the tongue that make unanswerable phrase

OH my please dry your eye.

I am my own disability and all I need is your ability

To hold my hand and understand

I am me

The one like you who is free.

Mind cannot behold

Something that is or is not bold

Mind cannot know

Each path that others have to go

Yet My mind

Is me

Oh can’t you see

I am like you free

Yet my mind holds me fettered

I am so shattered

With invisibilities cloak

I am not just a piece of coke

To be burnt and tossed away

Yes my friend I am here to stay

I do not know I do not fit in

Is that such a sin

To want to belong

To sing with you our summer song

Do not judge my state of mind

Just hold out your hand to me be kind
