They see my wheelchair,
I see my mobility,
They see my defects,
I see my effects,
They ask me,
Why are you proud,
Being a person with disability,
Why don’t you just get rid of it,
Is there no treatment for it?
I tell them No,
They say god bless you,
And I say god bless you too,
Why would I be ashamed to be normal?
Yeah… This is normal for me,
I don’t stick to the conventional notion of normality,
We are all normal from different aspects,
And different sizes,
My wheelchair is the most normal thing I see,
You don’t see it.. That’s your problem, not mine,
I see my disability,
As a pride,
As something to boast about,
I’m a proud Disabled,
Because I don’t Diss my Abilities…..
