A poem i wrote about people staring at a person that has a disability
Wishing you could go out,
without having someone that will stare.
It may be natural for children to.
I might have a disability, whether or not it is one where i use a wheelchair.
Inside we are all the same.
Parents, teach your children about disability,
i am not saying it's your fault, you are not to blame.
We might have something different about us on the outside,
but we want everyone to look past that and see us as a person like you,
and not to stare. A person that has feelings is there.
