Some years ago a county musician sang a song with lyrics that went something like Don't Laugh at Me, Don't Call Me names.. And it went on to talk about children and adults who were different the song has always been a kind of motto to me, and this piece was inspired by that song...

When you look at me

And see that I am not the same

That my legs don't work like yours

That I can't see

That I can't talk

Please Don't laugh at me

Because like you

I can feel the pain.

When you see me sitting here

In this chair of mine

Don't judge me

Because I can't walk

In so many ways

You and I are similar

But in so many ways we

Are different

That's what makes us unique.

When you hear me speak

In a monotone voice

Know that I can't hear what

You say

But I feel the love you give me

In each and everyway.

When you say I can't do this

Or can't do that

Remember there is more that

I can do than that I can't

And the greatest thing I can do

Is to love and be loved.

When you look at me

Don't laugh

Because we aren't all the same

God created each



And know we can't all be the same.
