I used to ask and sometimes still do
Why do some people laugh at me?
Why do some people look away when they see me?

As a child I wondered why the other children don't play with me
Why can't I speak like everyone else?
Why is my posture so bent and body twisted?
One day I heard some folks making remarks as I passed by slowly
They were talking about my deformity

Years have passed but still
Some look at me in pity
Others joke about me
I protest
It's not my fault
I was born this way
I refuse to despise myself

I was born
Needing help from others
Needing patience
Needing to be tend to as a child when I am an adult
Needing a smile, an encouraging word, a hug (this we have in common)
Needing to feel like I belong

Yes I need you
To help me cross the street
To give me something to eat
Even to give me a bath
Many are afraid to touch me
Afraid they would injure me
Please just get to know me

Then there are those who are so rough and abusive
Lacking sensitivity
That's when I need you to protect me
I am disabled physically
But I am able to love
When I can't say it my eyes and my smile will reveal it
When my eyes cannot show it, my touch will demonstrate it
When I am unable to open my eyes, or lack the strength to smile and touch
Then observe me closely and you will sense it
I am ABLE to love

God made me
I am human
I have ability
Treat me with dignity
Show me compassion not pity

Heavenly Father I thank you for all those who take care and show love and patience to everyone with a disability.
Father touch hearts, dry tears, bring comfort to those who feel alone and rejected. Send help quickly. I ask in Jesus name.
